Hi there, yes there is, you can tighten the front for winter and summer settings, if i remember rightly i think that where there are the two black clips at the front there is a way of tightening these to pull the roof tighter. sorry trying to go back a few years to when i used to own one.

    yeah i think thats the bit, just dont tighten it too much, or it can snap the roof, and you really dont want to do that lol
