Default Sunroof adjustment

I had to adjust my sunroof because in the closed position the glass was a little too low, allowing rain into the tray. I used some blue loktite on it to keep those 4 little torx screws in place. A year later the D-side rear corner has sunken and I can see a gap again. I can't seem to get it up high enough- I can push it up and tighten the screws but it creeps back down. Anyone have this happen? Is there a fix for it? Seems like a dumb idea to have oval slots and horizontal screws - why didn't they just make a horizontal flange that the glass bolts to? Are there any other adjustments?

Thank you,
-Shawn

You need to loosen the middle screw and rear screw, and let the roof pivot on the front screw, or loosen all 3.

Default middle screw?

I don't have a middle screw - just 4 - two in front, two in back....
