Take it off or just loosen the bolts and re-tighten? As soon as I push it down, the area towards the middle wants to push towards the front of the vehicle

I would take it back to the dealer and ask them to show you how to put them on properly.
When they aren't able to you can ask what they are going to do about it!
Good luck

I gotta go pick something up from them on Tuesday anyway...

But check this, if I try to force it to where they are aligned, then the knob won't line up

Need to make sure pins are seated in the holes at front of rear section then tighten evenly. Remember they are trying for production numbers. If your a lineman about the 100th time a day you put a top on you might not care its seated right.

Mine is the same, one is a couple of mm closer to the windscreen than the other. Pretty sure it came off the lot like that. I've had them on off, soft top on, hard top back on now and every time they go back on, it looks like that.

Have had no troubles with water leaking in or rain noise - I just accepted it.

Thanks for your help, I'll try that tomorrow after work... getting a bit late and frustrating
