Help! I recently had my 2000 Honda s2000 convertible top replaced retrofit from a top with plastic to top with glass and it won't go completely down.. the front part sticks up and blocks my rearview as opposed to going completely down. Help! Any suggestions????

If you replaced it with an original glass window top, that will happen. You have to replace with modified glass window top designed for the old frames. Or replace the entire thing.
