I have had to get a replacement hardtop for my 280SL and I am having trouble with the fitting of it. The problem is in the fixing that does into the nearside 'B' pillar. The drivers side fits in perfectly and locks, as do those on the windscreen header rail, but the passangers side will not go in far enough to lock.
Is the fixing adjustable? The lug needs to go about 1/2 to 3/4 inch further into the pillar to lock. I have been aplying some force to the hardtop to make it seat, but without success. Is this normal, or should the fitting of the top easy. Apart, that is, from the weight.
