(2003 NB Convertible 1.8T 09G)
When I open the top (automatic switch operation), the passenger side latch moves back to engage the locking pin, but the driver's side latch never engages no matter how long I hold the switch. The convertible top opens and closes normally other than that. How does the latch mechanism work and what can I do to fix it?

Sounds like an electrical issue, there are micro switches that tell the car the hoods ready to latch. have a look 1st and see if you can see anything thats come loose. Careful of fingers in that area

could be the above
