cabrio clamshell won't close when top lowered

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

After topping up the fluid in my top tank, all was well. Then a week later the clamshell refuses to close completely when top is lowered, but closes completely when top is raised. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Make sure the cloth from the roof is folding nicely.  I had this problem and it turned out to be a plastic roof stop at the rear of the roof compartment that was not being raised when the roof was lowered.  The stop prevents the fabric from overrunning the back end of the roof compartment.  As a result the roof material sat on top of the stop instead of being stopped by it.   This caused the bunched fabric to fully cover the rear catch or sit too tall and prevent the clamshell from closing far enough for the final engagement hooks to reach.  In my case it turned out to just be a couple of broken plastic clips holding the stop mechanisim in place.  Hope yours turns out as simple
