I will constantly update until it's fixed. Thanks!

p.s. it's coming from another shop so I'm not sure how much they looked into it or what
I am intrigued by this part. If the motors are all disconnected, the top should go all the way up manually. I suppose there is a physical problem with the top geometry. A common problem spot is the cross bar (or whatever it's called).
