Answers :

What about not latching in the front? Top seems to go up and down fine but when I go to latch the front to the windshield?
First you want to make sure that there are no obstuctions under the compartment area that may be keeping the top from resting in its bay.If that is clear, put the top halfway up and look for any leakage around the lift and collapse pistons. If you see any at all the pistons have to be resealed or replaced. If you do not see any leakage, look for a sheared pin in the pivot areas of the mainframe in the rear.
