I've been wondering about this for a while. I didn't think anything of it when I first got it, but now that I've looked at other 560's It looked like my hardtop was sitting too high. It's enough to put two fingers under. It also appears that the right side(facing the back of the car) is seated better than the left. Here are some pictures:


From the back driver side quarter panel.

From the back.


Any ideas?

You are sure that you put the level/fastener switch inside down?

Actually, come to think of it, I think I screwed up the hard top replacement procedure.
In this picture:


It shows the safety lever in the position D when placing the hardtop on. When my brother and I put the hardtop back on, it's in position E. I'm guessing the pin isn't catching the hook when the pin is in the hole since the hook is at the side. Not allowing the top to come down when I put the safety lever back up. Now I realized I should look around before posting this.

I'll give it a shot tomorrow. It's going to be a high of 88° and it'd be nice to have the top down.
