Default 1999 996 convertible top stops 3/4 of way down

I was caught out in the rain just for a few min.'s with the top down. Two days lateritwill only go down part of the way (3/4 of way down) .... (it will still come up to the closed position). When the top stops movingthe drive motor continues to turn but it sounds as if it starts to slip. I took the panel out, located behind the rear seat's and gained access to see the drive motor turning (when button on dash is pressed and held in) there's a long allen wrench held in a factory bracket there.In the center of thedrive motorthere's a bolt with an allen head.I'm sure the wrench is placed there for ajustment...I'm not sure if turning this boltoneway or the otherwill solve my problemwith the top....any help will be appr.
Is thereanyone that know thepurpose of the allen wrenchand what does turning the allenboltin the drivemotor effect.

thanks in advance.
