To take a different bend on this thread (pun intended), when I got my car back from the dealership after they replaced the top I was attempting to close the trunk and it just kept bouncing up. After several attempts (not very smart
) I finally noticed that a rubber bumper on the underside of trunk lid (there is one on each side of the lid) that apparently helps position the top in the trunk, had fallen off into the drain channels and was keeping the lid from shutting all of the way. Of course my efforts to close it forcefully resulted in a slightly warped trunk lid (larger gap on the passenger side rear lights than on the driver's side). I glued the rubber piece back on with gorilla glue but just recent had to reglue it. It is easy to bump off if working in the trunk.
