Convertible top bead not setting into place properly


Recommended Posts

My convertible top is not setting into the guide channels properly when I close it on my 1997 Boxster. The bead overlaps the molding on both the driver and passenger side. I know this is a common problem with Boxsters as almost every Boxster I've seen has displayed this. I've noticed some members have mentioned tying a knot in the cables to tighten the slack so that the bead falls into the guide channel, but I can't find anymore information on how to do this. This is my first Boxster so I'm not very familiar with anything on it. Is there a DIY for this procedure? I looked around but couldn't find anything.

Thanks guys!

I wrote up a DYI on this topic and Mike Focke has hosted it on his website here:

Tying a knot is not the proper procedure for a lasting or predictable fix.
