Hi all, i have a 2005 9-3 convertible and the roof seems to work fine but the rear roof cover doesn't latch dowwn with the roof fully open. It latches down when in the closed position, does anyone have experience of this same issue?

Is it safe to assume you've checked the fluid level for the hydraulic top? These are low-volume, high-pressure systems, so it doesn't take much of a leak to cause problems. Meanwhile while you sort that out, here's a little video I posted some time back showing the latching mechanisms for the top cover - accessible from inside the trunk: Thursday, February 11, 2021 10:35 AM by John Francis
Let me know if this doesn't play, and I can email the link to you.

Thanks for that, very helpful. I got it to close, it seems the hood itself wasn't folding away low enough, lack of use perhaps but it locks fine now.
