  1. You say the latch doesn't seem to be cracked or damaged in anyway. The latch itself is metal so hopefully is OK, however the latch should have a plastic cover that fits neatly over it. If this plastic cover is damaged or missing then the roof will not lock as it won't activate the microswitch. Check to see if the plastic cover is OK. If the problem is the plastic cover then it is a cheap and easy fix. The plastic cover part number is 996 561 787 00 as found in Porsche UD 248 Katalog 2010 (illustration 811-05 part #12).

After no success trying to clip the slats back onto the control bar due to the slats moving freely and being at different angles and spacings I came up with the following process to quickly line up the slats and attach them back to the control bar: Move horizontal slat control to downward position. Push a small flexible hair comb into the horizontal slats checking that they are evenly spaced. Move the comb to align all of the slats with all of the the clips on the
