  7. Inside of top pops out of rear window frame!

    New Beetle Convertible
    I bought my MIL's cherry 2005 VW Beetle back in May. For the second time, the inside of the convertible top has come out of the rubber frame around the rear window, which means now I can't put the top down in beautiful sunny AZ. What a crime! What's even more of a crime is that the last time...
