Smile Help with cabriolet top

I bought a replacement antenna (black rubber) instead of a telescoping wand that people love to break off. I was going to install it myself, however, you can't get to the existing antenna due to a large metal plate on which 3 bolts are mounted that a piston for the convertible top is attached. Whew!

I did loosen one of the bolts, in an effort to determine if this would help in accessing the antenna. It didn't. Now the top won't work at all, well at least not in an automatic mode. I can raise and lower it manually.

Did I create an air pocket by loosening that bolt and allowing the piston mechanism to slip a bit?

I hope someone can help me.

By the way, the car is a 1993 300CE Cabriolet.
