Another Trek top NX question...

I got my trek top nx on over the weekend but I cant seem to get my back window zipped in. Its on there....but I cant get the sides to zip. Its been upper 70's all week so I thought it would stretch a little to give me something to work with but no luck here. Any suggestions?

It will be tight, mine was. I used a stubby screwdriver, slit it through the end of the zipper and pulled it down that way, I couldn't do it trying to grip it with my fingers. Also, over time I have learned something. I only did this once but I put some silocone spray inside the plastic strip connected to the top that you slide the top of the rear window into. I made it much easier to slide it and...I found that I slide it in from right to left and I dont slide it all the way over, I leave it so it is easier tostart the zipper on the R side and I start it, then I pull that bitch as hard as I can to the left side and start that zipper. You will need the scewdriver or something to hook in there at first and then it will get easier over time. Let me know how it goes because getting the bottom of the window clipped in is a whole different story, it took me a while to learn the trick for that. Don't fret though, that top is AWESOME!!!!!

Remove the front latches (I usually make sure the freedom top is open)... and it should then zip.
When mine was new, it was hell to get everything latched/zipped. If you get a hot sunny day, put it out there for an hour with windows up... it will help everything loosen up.
