Sunrider Door Surround Latch

Hi guys, I've had my soft top stored for some time I finally have a garage and now I can put the soft top on again.
I put it on no trouble, on the driver side, but on the passenger side the sunrider won't latch into the door surround. I can get it in there but it pops out. Does any one have a similar issue? How about the part number for the latch? In looking for the part number I can find whole surround (55395236AF) not just the latch though. I have been searching the forum and can't find any similar issues.
Thanks for any help.

I've had trouble before and always double check those latches making sure they click in before I hook the windshield patches or the sail panels.

Maybe try un doing everything and start over with passenger-side latch.

Have you inspected the spring in the latch itself? Maybe a (minimal) spritz of lube into the latch would help.

Yeah I have taken both of them off to see if I could see any difference between that one and the driver side. No luck. Good idea I'll get a little WD-40 in there to see if it might seat a little better, thanks!
