The right-side latch on the windshield frame often gets stuck and does not unlatch. The process is also much louder than I remember (ie when it does unlatch, there's a loud "pop" as if there is a lot of tension.)

any diagnosis?

regards.

This is the most complex system for any tech to properly diagnose. Go to someone who is ultra familiar with the system!
