Mine works OK since the new hinges were installed - only a few times with the dreaded "time out" It still tends to rise more quickly on the driver's side, ever after attempts at lubing the hinges, and the tonneau still does not sit properly. The dealer could not get it right, and in the interest of preventing paint damage from a lot of leaning over, I've been trying to adjust it myself. I can't get the driver's side to come down enough to have it flush with the rear lid. With the one side up higher, the center is also higher than it should be. The hinge assembly sits on a locating stud and is bolted in place, but the bolt holes and locating stud hole are not slotted, so it can't be lowered. Maybe Freezer can help on this one - if I remove the driver's side hinge assembly, and use my Dremel tool to create slots for the locating stud and bolts so the hinge assembly can be dropped slightly, could I achieve the desired results? The tonneau, with the original hinge assemblies, sat too low, and was snagging the rear deck lid - seems strange that I can't achieve a happy average
One frustration of something as low production as the SSR is the lack of knowledge at the dealer level - I insisted on being there the entire time they worked on it, and happy I was - no one had seen the top work before, so they certainly didn't have much expertise. I'd already had it apart a few times to try to keep the old hinge system working, so I could steer them through disassembly.
There must be a documented adjustment procedure at LCC, and perhaps access to that information would allow the more adventurous among us to have the satisfaction of making it work right. :smash
