Mini Convertible Denim Roof - PROBLEMS

Grateful for any help....

I have a beautiful cooper convertible that have been slowly developing a roof problem.

Started with a possible leak and dealer replaced a bracket at the back...
Then opening issues... the claws will not engage in the housing at the rear...
Now the roof doesn't want to open past the sunroof condition.

The dealer hasn't been any help... Suggested new cables... but its not that...

Latest advice I have had from a mobile specialist is that the denim is a known issue and shrinks. This in turn affects the tension and tolerances required to close the roof... Black ones are made of a different material so not that same issues...

Is this a crock of 'you know'...?

Not sure where to go for help..
