I didn't have a problem but have treated my top with Wolfsteins Raggtopp Protectant, great stuff. Also, I had no leaks which was a concern of mine due to the high pressure cleaning. However, when I have the ragtop in use I wash by hand. I use the touchless when it's too cold and I have my hardtop on.

Alee, too cold would be somewhere consistently below 50-55 and sunny. That's when I put my hardtop on for winter.
