Default Clunking Canopy when Closing


I have a clunking sound when the canopy is being closed. There is no connection with the rear of the canopy and the only connection at the point of clunk is the 2 hinges.

Please view a YouTube movie of the clunk.

It would appear that the hinge connected to the bulkhead jerks at the point of clunk.

Any suggests of a remedy would be most welcome.

Just guessing here, but it sounds like F768 B,C&D Seal Support Angle is catching on the forward face of the canopy frame (a common cause of noises like this). If so, sand them down a touch until they no longer interfere.
