Convert top stuck

Hello, I was putting my top up today, and it seems to be stuck about 1" from closure, with the back trunk cover about 12" from lowering.

If I push the switch to close it again, it sound like it is moving, then stops even if I have the switch depressed.

Has anyone seent hsi before, and is there a corrective action? I can manually make the top close and close the latch, but the rear cover remains 12" open.

Thanks in advance.

I've not had this problem, but it sounds like a cable/timing issue. Do a search on maybe "clamshell", as this kind of problem is not all that unusual, unfortunately.
You should be able to find a number of threads related to this problem.
