Passenger side lines up perfect, drivers side there is a gap. Lowered the windshield and tightened back up, didn’t help. I stuck a piece of foam in it to get rid of the wind leak but was wondering if I could adjust the front of the soft top to fit it flush. I really don’t want to go to the dealer for this.

Looks like a manufacturing problem like the fabric wasn't cut straight and it's too short on one side. The gap looks too big for any amount of adjustment to fix. I'd work with the dealership to look at a replacement top if it were me.

I appreciate the input I might end up going to a dealer when I find time.

@T.T.T. Any luck getting this corrected. I am experiencing the same thing with my JLU Sport

I ended up putting a piece of foam with adhesive on one side on it. Works great. Never took it to the dealership for a replacement but I’m sure you could.
