Help! Rod snapped on inside workings of convertible top

Postby marcm » Tue Aug 04, 2015 2:05 pm

Hi all. Well, I guess it was bound to happen one day. After 11 years of worry-free working, yesterday morning when I pushed the top down button to let the roof down I heard something "snap" behind me. The roof did continue to work and went all the way down though. I could pretty easily located the snapped part. It sits between the rear quarter window and the roof mechanism. Driver side. Would love to post a picture of the part, but can't figure how to add a picture here. How does one do that anyway?

Isn't that a part that goes to the end of the rod? It's brown in color and made of copper. It broke on mine and had to get it from a junkyard.
