Anyone have issues with the pin lock that goes into the truck lid not aligning up? If so is there an adjustment that I can do without taking it to the dealer? Mine all of sudden it a struggle to get in now and it seems the top itself does not want to fold down like it use too. It may be me on this one, I don't drive it a whole lot.

Rarely I'll have a problem like that. Spraying some graphite or silicone spray in the hole and around the "catch" is a good idea. I used a light coat of Vaseline on it one time when I was out of graphite.

It seems to me that if I open up both car doors all the way when raising or lowering the top, things go smoother. I suppose making sure the windows are down would do the same thing even with the doors closed, but I prefer to open both doors.

RTE and others have done extensive posts and pictures on lubricating and inspecting the folding top.

The pin doesn't need lube, it needs to go towards the rear of the car more about an 1/8 inch to work smoothly like the passenger side does. Before I latch the the top down to the windshield I tried pushing pin into hole worked like a champ, but once I latch the top down it seems to pull pin away from hole just a tab bit and that makes it hard to push in. Is there an adjustment to make it go towards the rear of the car?
