Need some opinions, my rear window has a slight sag at the bottom. Not sure if I've missed an area to tighten it up or if that is as good as it gets. Both side windows are perfect and look as expected. I've taken a couple pictures which don't really do it justice, but they're there. I appreciate any help.

Make sure the rear bar is installed correctly and that the tube on the back window hasn’t pulled out of the channels. It can slide through and part be out of the channel. My advice would be to remove it and reinstall the top first then the bottom. If that fails send Bestop a PM see if they will replace it.

Thanks. I checked all the tube and channels. I also reinstalled the rear window. Top then the bottom. If I don't clip in the matterial on the window on the bottom at the very corners it seems to improve it. After the reinstall there is less sag...

I think I may just leave these unclipped in their channel on each side at the bottom. Shouldn't leak..hopefully...Both the top, bottom and sides are in the proper channels.

Thank you. Will keep in mind if what I did now doesn't fix it enough. I appreciate it.

Does it look like your lower rail across the bottom of the window is bent out ever so slightly? I’m just noticing it with mine, too. Wondering if that’s normal or has happened over a few months.

I had my windows replaced under warranty. The sides were sagging like the rest of the pictures seen posted here. the new sides are much better although not perfect. But they also replaced my rear window as well (the original had a defect on the seam and the rear window sags more than the original!

I think just over time with heat and expansion they will sag. Its plastic and if its sitting in the sun being pulled tight, its going to stretch over time. I've only had my new ones for 4 months. Overall though, I'm really happy with the top. Hasn't leaked at ALL. Only complaint is after a heavy rain and I get in or out, there is a waterfall at the front door edge.
