roof cannot closed properly

Hello

Please see the attached photos......it happened today and while Iwas going to open the roof, at the last stage or procedure, obviously it doesn't fit properly to the car, is there any screw that needs to be fixed?

From your picture it looks like it is even all around and not binding on one side or the other. I have had this happen on occasion especially if the roof is cold. I move it back up a bit and then down again. Hold the down button a little longer after the light on the dash goes out and see if that helps.

Also, try lubricating the mechanism of the top and the clam shell. There are a lot of sliding and pivoting parts in there.

The top mechanism looks complicated at first, but in reality it is very simple.
Make sure non of the parts is worn out, and the rails are clean and greased.
Adjusting the whole machanisim is done by sincronizing the two top transmissions.
Pelican parts have great article on their website for top adjasment.
