Inspect for any damaged components with the roof system that may be causing any issues with these latching properly.Also check and make sure there is no debris blocking any of the roof components and/or latches causing this issue needing corrected.If these are or were already checked and found o.k. let me know so we can continue.

These steps were already done by me in looking for some sort of reason for the failure of the locks to close properly. On the web page someone suggested that I adjust the mechanism but that's why I sent the question to you. I can not find instructions for this anywhere.

O.k.,there is a technical service bulletin on the latches being bent especially the front center latch arm.If you inspect this arm does it appear bent at all?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Pete like I stated before I have already seen the bulletin and I had checked the arms in question and they are not the issue. The adjustment to the mechanism is what I need the answer to.

I apologize for the delay.Unfortunately this is all of the info I have on this here myself.I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
