Soft top side panel flying off while driving

Hey guys

Three weeks ago, I bought a 2009 2-door Sahara- couldn't be happier with my choice!!!

However I have a problem with the left soft top side panel. While it should tightly fit under the closed door, it does not seem to be long enough to fit under the window. As soon as I hit 100 km/h (I'm Canadian... lol), the front of the side panel kind of opens up and wind starts entering the car.

No matter how hard I pull, it does not seem to be long enough to fit under my window...

I do not have this problem on the right side.

Has anyone encountered this problem in the past? I hope I don't have to replace my brand new top...
