I've been meaning to post this for a while. Just had to do it again today so I took some pics:

Every once in a while my roof sticks about 34 of the way closed. I've found that pulling to top rails off and cleaning them out works wonders and gets the top closing as usual.
  • Open your top all the way
  • Unclip the top rails over the doors
  • Alternately spay silicone* and wipe the tracks with Q-Tips until no more black comes off.
  • Give the tracks one more light spray then wipe one last time.
This is what comes out of the tracks.
Soil Rock Grass Geology Geological phenomenon

Once the tracks are clean and lubed, the roof should open and close like new. If you really want to go all out, you can open up the back and spray the rollers, too. (I do that once every 3 clean/lubes)

*I use food grade, because it doesn't have any petroleum distillates in the propellants.
