Pictures might help. What about the side latches?

is it original ? I heard snug top doesn't fit well. It should slide on smoothly.

I had to shim the rear mounts to fit snugly on my car, but it was square. I'll guess your frame is tweaked or the top is aftermarket.

Try taking the guts out of the rear latches, connect the front and sides snugly, then put the guts back in the rear mounts and see if it will work that way.
