Rollover bar

all from memory -- but I think this will get you started

put top in service mode -- there are 2 nuts on each side underneath some padding besides the drainage trays

for the convertible.

than there are 2-3 nuts each behind each seat behind a carpet trim piece. I believe all the nuts are 13mm.

that piece has an 8mm bolt at the top that connects to the bar,

and a phillips head screw in the side bottom half near engine carpet.

you also need to remove at least one seat belt bolt bolt by each seat outer side. 15mm I think.

that should do it --

good luck,

that's easy. do as if you are going to put the top down... when u get half way .. when the back lid is up stop closing. there will be two cables one each side .. pry off bottom end of each .. than on back you'll see the top thin cover is connected to the back part of the shell by a simple clip on each side.once you have done that .. you should be able to lift the back half of the conv top by hand and fold towards rollbar. than you close the top most of the way.this should all be in your users manual.BTW when removing the panel behind the drivers side .. be careful there is a harness that has a connection on the bottom. you'll need to disconnect before completely removing.good luck.btw .. to get the pads off rollbar pry them off gently .. they are only pressed on.the seat belt plastic clam shell opens easily with a screw driver.I've done this now several times.first time was just inspecting as I went ... all was pretty straight forward.mike
