Convertible top will not lock/unlock manually

So I've been having issues with my '05 325ci convertible top locking mechanism since I bought it. Using a 4mm allen key has always done the trick to lock and unlock it. However, now it won't. It just spins and s The top is almost all the way closed, but just enough to leave a gap for rain and air. What can I do to fix this?

Is it possible the plastic latch pieces in the front bow are broken. Mine were and I had to have them repaired.
