it does latch properly, I did find the hydrolic res. I think, there is a + mark in the middle and that is the level of the oil

i do have a scheduled appt. at a dealer and told them to look at that, they without looking at the car seem to think it is the rubber seal, the seal looks fine to me.

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, I need the 17 digit VIN number to pull up both the proper adjustment procedure as well as check for any known issues with the convertible top causing wind noise

Ok, first, there is an adjustment procedure for the top, which is a bit indepth. I have uploaded it for you. There are not any service bulletins for known issues on wind noise, but I have encountered a couple where the seals around the side where windows seals cause some noise

But the first step is doing the adjustment and only then, if still getting wind noise, check and replace seals as needed
