Afternoon everyone,


I am having some trouble getting my front roof seal to sit properly. It fits fine to the header rail, but when I fit the soft top, the roof cable doesn't seem to have anywhere to sit. 


When looking at the seal, there is a groove running all the way across the roof (shown as the red line below, #1).




However, when I bring the soft top to the car the roof cable sits too far forward, and it kind of fits into the red groove but ends up pushing the seal towards the front of the car and unsticking it. As an estimation I would say the cable is about 10mm forward of the red groove. Am I fitting it right, or is the cable actually supposed to fit infront of the seal (on the blue line, #2?)



If anyone could provide some insight or even a picture with their soft top on that would be great.

Blue groove is where it goes
