Default 2006 Convertible top bangs shut

Hey all, new to the forum .... i have a 2006 Convertible, turbo H.O. This is my 3rd PT but my first PT Convertible. Just got it about 2 months ago with only 40, 000 miles and a local car. My problem is when i close the top it comes closed so hard it slams down on the windshield. I have been stopping the closing operation about 6 inches before it is closed to lessen the slamming. Looked around the forum and could not find anything on this problem. Anybody have a ideas, cause the local dealer has NO clue.

Cool Re: 2006 Convertible top bangs shut

You are currently doing what I did for my 2006 GT vert Black Sheep.
My current 2005 Dream Cruiser vert doesn't seem to do that.

If you look in the historical threads on this forum, I believe there is an adjustment to fix that.
I just didn't bother.

According to the link attached there might be a manual emergency over ride valve that is not turned all the way to the power position to keep the top from banging shut.

Also that the convertible top pump fluid may be low or needs the air bleeded out of it.
