Roof adjustment

Got roll bar in. Roof closes but needs a little help pulling it to fully lock in close position. Side to side good. What can I adjust to pull forward a little. Unfortunately, when I wasn't watching son removed piece before I had chance to mark location.

Brey-kraus rollbar? Open the top to the service position and check to make sure the arms to the top transmition ar connected. If one side has popped out the other side is doing all the work. Ask me how I know...Boxster tops can be problematic.

I saw that in the manual today when I was looking at the rollbar torque. I'll post tomorrow if you still need it. It shows where to adjust and has a measurement from the windshield top to a point on the rollbar (I think it's 799 +/- 1 mm).

No, regular roll bar just painted to match body.
I loosen the 10mm on the top drive operating link (both sides), they slid about a 1/2 forward and I tightened. Seems better. Thanks guys.
