The soft top rear retainer snaps open when it hits the tiniest bump....very scary and close to dangerous when it happens at freeway speeds. I checked the mechanism and it seems to work fine. Are the retaining springs getting weak, even though I believe the springs have nothing to do with retention...obviously there must be too much tension or the mechanism is not engaging properly........any ideas from folks that have had a similar problem. Thank you

Are you talking about the soft top boot lid?
Mine was popping open on one side. I lubricated the mechanism and this seems to have helped.
