946 Spider roof creeping up!

My 2007 Spider roof operates fine but when I have closed it and it indicates the 'operation has completed' I drive about 2 miles and then receive the message 'roof closure incomplete' when I look through the rear view mirror the roof has crept up about 1cm so is not sealed anymore.

Is this a hydraulic or electrical problem has anyone had a similar situation?

Qunney in NZ figured it out in this thread:

It's related to the gas struts losing pressure and not holding the rear of the roof down correctly. They can be replaced (not cheap however), or possibly re-pressurised by a specialist.
