Hi there,
I would ask please to be more specific. Which latches are you refering to. The latches on the top itself??? Or the strikers on the top of the windshield?????
Please keep us posted, c4c5:hb

Front Latches

I want to tighten the Top where it latches to the Front Header. I am sure whether it is the latches or the windshield header.
I think after a new Top was put on there is wind noise from this area. I have adjusted the door window tip ins and the rear bow to 1/8 inch(just so the corner folds are not touching the paint).

Hi there,
Oh, ok, what you will have to do it adjust the strikers at the top of the windshield.
There are 2 10mm bolts holding the strikers to the top of the windshield. YOu can do one of 2 things, either loosen them slightly, and move the strikers down.
Or you can, if you have a steady hand, and a rubber mallet, use a small piece of 2x4, and tap the striker down, without loosening the striker. If they are torqued correctly, the sharp blow of the 2x4 will move the striker down slightly.
Please let us know if you need further information on this.
Besttoyou, c4c5:hb
