Top misses left support

The top does not want to be on the inside of the window frame and gets streched around the curved section.

Any fi for this?

I have the same problem. I stop closing the top with about 10 inches to go, hop out and flip the edge back into the frame. I tried tightening the velcro, the that didn't help.

My car some times does it on both the DS and PS. Just part of being a Porsche I guess.

There are helper straps that are supposed to guide the top in the frame. See the link here for some help: http://mike.focke.googlepages.com/convertibletopedgedoesnotfallintoguidech

From the looks of your picture, it seems a clamping rail in the b-pillar area has snapped too. Take a look at the link I provided above for some insights as to how to fix that situation.

That's exactly what my car does. Never could get it adjusted correct.

Can't you fit the clubs in the trunk?
