Question 2017 991.2 Targa 4s Roof Problem ! Help !

Hello, firstly let me introduce myself,
My name is Steve and i am from Tel-Aviv , Israel , I currently have a 2017 991.2 Targa 4s , a 2015 Macan S and a 1979 911sc Targa, i am 31 ,happily married and have a little 1 year old girl and a little boy on the way for July....

I received my 2017 991.2 Targa 4s around November 2016 and have around 8k miles on it, i love the car, but since delivery i have had a problem with the targa roof, every once in a while when i try opening the roof, the glass cover in the back opens but the targa roof stay stuck on the car and the PCM display says ' Targa roof control fault service required'. If i give the roof a little help with my hands than it eventually detaches from the car and all goes fine. This is really annoying , have any of you had similar issues ? any ideas as to what could cause this problem ? there are currently only two 991.2 targa in the whole country and we only have one Porsche dealership in Israel and they cant find the problem for now. i am bringing my car in soon for the 10k servicing, hopefully they will be able to find a solution.

Thanks for your help !

Mine's a 2014, and the top goes up and down all the time and I have never had an issue. I would certainly ask that they fix it and provide you with a loaner until they do.

This happened to me after a dealer tried to resolve squeak/rattle issues by putting some kind of adhesive spray on the seals around the top of the windshield.

Cleaning this off and lubricating the seals with silicone resolved the problem.

Curious if you have any squeak/creak/rattle issues. Mine's a 2014.
