Convertible not closing - latch proably broken?

Are you saying the left side, most forward hinge point is not straigtening out all the way? If you and someone else are trying to manually push down the front bow to try to crank for connection, is the right side hinge straightened out and the bow can be placed right on the frame, but, the left side doesn't? If so, you have exactly the same situation I do with my Wife's. I am currently awaiting some time this weekend to attack it again and see if something is mechanically wrong as I'd checked the typical wiring issue, found a couple of wires with light crimp marks, went ahead and cut a section out and spliced new in, but still no movement. That is why I am suspecting a possible mechanical issue.
