Some vehicles (without inner cloth/headliner) may exhibit rubbing/contact marks on the top fabric of the convertible top around the area as shown. The marks may occur on the right and/or left side(s). This is caused by the top fabric receiving vibration and the stitching line (hard) touching the top fabric while the vehicle is running with the convertible top opened (top fabric folded and piled up). To correct this concern, the link stopper of the convertible top has been changed to adjust the opening angle of the convertible top, thereby decreasing the contact pressure applied to the top fabric when folded and piled up. NOTE: Compared to the top fabric with inner cloth, the top fabric without inner cloth is more likely to have this concern because the folded height is set lower, therefore the top fabric is folded and piled up in more tight condition.
