Hello there. I had this same issue. Maybe not so bad. What I did was pop the top up about half way. I then unlatched the caps on the cloth strap that folds around a metal bar. I then went to bass pro and bought a fabric tent glue in a tube for like $6. In small sections I used this glue on both sides of the top and clamped. Waited for 24 hours and Done.....worked great.
