hardtop side latch


Recommended Posts

hi.

i noticed that the passinger side latch is acting upp.

today i was driving and noticed some strange wind blowing, look to the right and the latch is completely open and loose.

got home, looked at it, and it seems that when i latch it up, the bottom part is actually not moving, meaning it doesnt latch up even though the handle is turned all the way and looks latched.

anyone know how i can fix this or any replacement parts?

btw, then the top is off and i turn the handle, the parts move, but any pressure put on the mechanism results in parts not moving (not turning).

any help is appreciated.

thx

resolve the issue.

this morning i had nothing to do since it was raining so i was in garage.

took the top off, took the latch out, and went to work.

turns out that the spindle and the handle had to be pushed in all the way together, and there is a hole there and a pin goes trough it.

the pin broke off, so there was 3 different pieces of it inside there.

took everything out, lined it up, and put a new 'pin', actually a thick nail kinda pin, and its jammed in there pretty good and will not go anywhere for sure.

put everything back together, just tied the bolts and latched it, no adjusting, sits so flush its not even funny, i cant believe how bad it was before.

now both sides looks good, and its really tight, took it for a drive, and MUCH improvement, no wind noise or weird sounds.

success.

thx pk2 for the offer and PM but got it working.
