First install this morning (by me...prior owner used it)
Everything is good except the small spot between the front and rear passenger doors....right above the b pillar. I can't get the plastic flange to stay in so the doors can seal correctly....there is a big gap. I have tried with and without front latches installed....its almost like the bow is sitting a bit too high. I have the little plastic cradles resting where they would seem to go (on the other bow)
My bow clips have a half round concave shape that clips into the side horizontal bars. I usually seat them by pulling in slightly on the bow and out slightly on the horizontal side bar. Once seated the sides tuck in easily. There is no tuck in right at the pillar. Mine never leaked on either of my 08s. I kept the soft top going from my first 08 to my second when Chrysler bought the first one back. It fit on the second 08 the same as the first one.
