convertible top down problem

Recommended Posts

This January I purchased a very well maintained 2003 C4 Cab with Tiptronic transmission. I have had no issues with it to date. With top down warm weather this past week I happened to look at how the top appeared in the down position and the relationships of the front panel containing the overturn pop ups, the middle panel which is the front of the top in the up position and the rear metal clam shell. There is a 1 1 1/4 inch gap between the front and middle panels as seen in the attached pictures. The top otherwise works perfectly well and opens and closes with ease. There doesn't seem to be any other obvious poor alignments. Obviously I have checked with other Carreras  and this gap does not exist. Any advise on this would be appreciated.

You got the special one?  Looks like the last micro switch in the close sequence needs to be reset.  I don't know which one it is, sorry.

Thanks for the advice. Sounds like a job for my indie who has the calibration equipment. I'll get back to the forum regarding the outcome.
