so i went and did a closer inspection. There is no way in hell that roof motor has enough torque to bend that metal. That metal is seriously thick.

My problem is that the latch hits the striker and misalignsthe roof line along the window.

if i slightly tug the roofe aprox 3-4mm to the drivers side, the pin on the top of the latch slides into the striker correctly. So i am going to loosen the striker and see if can have enough play with it to get it correctly aligned.

thanks for your help guys....

Hi guys, any update on that? I bought a 2nd soft top and the situation is similar or even worst than before. Spacers didn't work. If I add too many spacers, it will add too much pressure on the sides and raise the middle, increasing the wind noise.
When pulling up the top to the maximum, it stays a couple of cm above the windscreen frame. I ran out of ideas ...

Soft top frame may have bowed a bit, a thick piece of wood and a rubber mallet to flatten it out a bit where it meets the windscreen. Bend it back.
