I just bought my wife the car listed above, convertible. The window has separated from the top and the top is worn. I want to replace the top myself. I have worked on cars for many years, but never replaced a convertible top. I see you have posted this replacement in the past, but I can't see the pictures. Please send me the complete steps. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I would be happy to help. However, I need to know if this has a manual convertible or if it is hydraulic.

Also, take a look through the list below and let me know which sections you need. LOL There are several.

Take care,

Joe

Joe,

Thanks for the reply.
It's a power top.
Please provide the following sections:
