ghead I have been having an issue installing my hard top on my 2001 Z3. After lowering the top and putting the post into the car chasey I can not crank or turn the handles all the way. Sometimes I can get one side all the way and sometimes the other all the way but not both. Almost like the car is warped. Any other hard top owners have the same issues or hassles?

The rear hard top catches are adjustable may you need to slacken them for a bit as I remember you pull of the cover above the handle and slacken of the 22mm nut and turn the adjuster nut (there is a special tool but you don't need it
