Yes. That last tab has a rivet near it, the metal may have cracked around the rivet and the tab came off.

Thanks. Is it supposed to contain a river? Or is that old repair?

I can't say whether it is supposed to, but mine does. Here are two pics of the rear tabs on the hood on my '24. Looks like the metal on mine may be cracking near the rivet, I need to figure out a way to stop it before it gets worse. :-(

The front of my hood also has two rivets near the hinge, here is a pic of the front:

I just noticed in the picture that my front hood sheet metal also has a crack coming from the sharp inside corner of the notch on the passenger side! Aargh! :-(
