    Mine had that too but after remounting a few times with help (pressure from outside) it fitted.
    Hope yours will too!

    Out of curiosity, does anyone have a source of where to get those black plastic insulators? I asked the Tesla SC and they told me they weren't available as stand along pieces and that I had to purchase an entire hardtop hardware set to get them. I checked with Lotus and got the same thing.

And it seemed to work! Not perfect but 80% better than prior. Top photo is driver side (before) and bottom is after the adjustments. Passenger side came out the same as well. Thanks everyone!
