I am a Blender n00b and have this beginners question that I can't find an answer for.

I'm following this course by testedpancake on YouTube to model a car. In part 7 of his tutorial he is extruding the hood of the car to the Y-axis: Model a 3d Car | part 7 | hood vents and topology examples

In my case I cannot get one point of the edge that I want to align with the Y-axis to snap to it. Please see the pictures below.

When I zoom in the vertice is not attached to the Y-axis

My question: how do I snap a vertice to the Y-axis?

Can somebody please help me out? Thank you!

EDIT: Here's the file: Dodge Challenger car

Selecting the edge to move to Y-axis Selecting the edge to move to Y-axis

Having 2 points snapped to the Y-axis, but not really! Having 2 points snapped to the Y-axis, but not really!

When I zoom in, the vertice is not aligned with the green Y-axis at all! When I zoom in, the vertice is not aligned with the green Y-axis at all!

    $\begingroup$ try activating clipping in the mirror modifier and pull the vertex all the way to the left and it should stuck to the middle. $\endgroup$ Nov 2, 2018 at 16:37

Enable clipping in the mirror modifier and then try again. If you now move your vertices to the left they should stop when they touch the other mirrored vertices.
