2013 moab 4 door softop window issue

Can anyone help me figure out why I can't zip the whole window. It gets stuck when the zipper has to turn. I had no problems at all until these side windows. Thanks in advance.

Open the front buckles on the windshield frame. This should give you enough slack to close the zippers. Then buckle the latches.

Hey I tried that. No luck. I'm just too far at the corner after I put the window into the pillar. I'm going to take off the top and the pillars and start over. Maybe something isn't lined up 100%

Can you post a pic or describe the process by which you ate installing?

There is a district order to installing the side windows that, if done incorrectly, will make it difficult/impossible to get right.

Is this the first time putting the soft top on? If so, I had a heck of time getting mine on the first time too. I think I ended up unhooking the rear sail panel, starting window in door surround and tub, zipping window around the bend, then hooking the sail panel back in and finishing zipping the window. After it has set a few days, it's a bit easier now.
