Did a search on Cabrio top leaking, no threads that aren't a couple of years old, so I will try again. My top along the front edge does not make a complete seal, very loud wind noise when driving, although I have not seen any rain come in yet, it is still very annoying. I'm wondering if there is any adjustment for the hooks on the left/right front sides when the top fully closes, any ideas?

Make sure you close your top while at a standstill, for the least top-up wind noise. If I close mine while driving, there is always more noise than if I had closed it while stopped. By doing it the way I've suggested, the wind noise from the leading edge of the top has decreased dramatically. A cabrio smart top will always be noisier than its coupe counterpart, but at least this way it no longer annoys me, and seems normal.

would think there would be some sort of adjustment, I know back in the old days, they were adjustable, and they are on the kid's old Cavalier but I haven't looked at the latches on a smart.

No latches and any "adjustments" aren't for the faint of heart . . .

And our top goes up and down at any SPEED - no issues? :shrug:

Note: Cleaning/conditioning the ragtop annually is a good plan.

No excess noise , close or open at any speed without issue or change in wind sound . I agree on treating this top yearly with tender care .
