Clamshell not sitting flush when the roof is open


Recommended Posts

All of a sudden my top is not sitting flush with the body when the roof is open

 

The light goes out indicating that the car thinks the top is all the way down. The clamshell goes down evenly, not askew. The front is aligned correctly, but the back of the clamshell just sits proud of the bodywork by maybe 1/2". Enough that it's visibly not fully closed when seen in my rear view mirror. I cycled the top up (works fine) and down (same problem). Had someone try to help it down that last little bit, to no avail. No unusual noise when operating the top

 

Any thoughts on what's wrong and how to correct it. No recent work has been done on the top, but it is a milder version of what I saw when I had the immobilizer replaced (2 years ago for water intrusion) and the Porsche dealer failed to fit the top back on properly. 

 

Thanks, Carlos

Is the clamshell touching any part of the the top itself? or, is there space between clamshell and top?

 

The difference may indicate which is at fault. If the top is settled down and not touching, then it's gonna be an issue with only the clamshell. If the two are touching then the top may not be settling down far enough for the clamshell to nestle into the closed position.
