Mein Auto: 1988 325i
can't lower top - 88 325i conterible

I undo the front latches, pop and open the hatch, fold back and lower the top carefully and...

I'm about 3" shy of being able to close the hatch.
Have tried everything except jumping on the top.

What trick am I missing?

Thanks!

When you fold it into the back make sure that the 2 straps on the top are also tucked in

Just before you put the top all the way down you need to fold those straps in-between the bars that fold in also
