The windows in the right door of my Spider slightly touches the soft top and to solve this I want adjust the top stop of the window.
Do any one have some pictures showing which part to adjust?
The pictures in the workshop manual is a bit hard to decifer

I have look in the link below to get some ideas

But it would be nice with some pictures as a guideline.
Because I don't want to make the problem worser.

Remove the door card as per the instructions, then drop the window down half way, then just follow section 11 to adjust the bump stops, it's a simple job, undo the nuts one on each side at the top of the door, which loosen the bump stops,they slide up and down. Push them down a little bit and tighten the nuts back up. You can put a pencil mark on the metal slider next to the nut, so that you can see how much you move the slider. Put the window back up and close the door, if the window still catches on the hood, you will need to move the bump stop down a bit further. Don't put the door card back on until you are sure the window is fitting properly. There are some photos somewhere but at the moment I can't find them, but I'll keep looking. Once you have the door card off you'll see things are not complicated.

Henrik, do a search for window replacement and scroll down until you see a thread by me called window problem, click on that and you can see a picture of the upper window bump stops. I've tried attach it as a link, but I can't get it to work.

Removed the door card this afternoon and adjusted the top stop for the window.
It was quite easy but it required a few iteration before the window didn't catch the soft top and still touched the seals properly
