Default convertible top doesn't close all the way

So, when we put the top down, it doesn't disappear all the way into the stacking well. not 100% sure that this is out of the norm, and, in the grand scheme, it's a minor at best issue. Just wondering if this is indicative of the issue.


when we put the top up, it stops about an inch from the landing on the top of the windshield frame. only way to get it to close, is to raise the top, and quickly lock in a side.


I notice that at the farthest forward joint, she leaks a touch when I'm washing the car. (no...not a drive thru car wash...I'm not THAT crazy)


now, I wonder if the car's tops has a limit switch? is there an adjustment that I'm missing?

Mods, if this is in the wrong subforum, please feel free to move.


just figured not all convertibles operate the same way.

when I had my 07 vert it closed all the way with no problems at all. Was a new top put on the car? or another question did someone sit on the top during a parade? sounds like it has some alignment issues especially if its leaking. maybe check around your area see if there is a good top shop in town.
