I believe on the top that they showed which was all mangled was caused by the latch not releasing and the driver not realizing this, and tried to keep opening the top. I am not sure what is causing the la
tch on the one side not to release but if anybody has any info it would be greatly appreciated.


I had this occur with my car about a year ago. It turned out it was related to the hinges in the front cowl area. There is a TSB about it and they replaced the hinges under warranty. Get it checked out.
If your sport doesn't put blood, dirt or grease under your fingernails,
then it's just a game.
