How do you tighten top (window frame) console piece on C2 Cab

Recommended Posts

If that is what it's called... I attached a pic.

I have a 99 C2 Cab. I was checking the rattle when my top is up.

This piece, the console the convertible top locks into is loose.

The PO broke the threads.. how is this fixed? See pic.

It's in the top of the window frame.,. I can't see any access to it.

Loren, I edited my post, but I could not change the headline.

I took off the IR covers (the dark plastic thingys) and there are 2 4mm bolts.

Unfortunately, the receiving end is cracked as in the pic.

I can see of no way to replace this. It looks like it's sealed in the window frame.

Any suggestions?

Ok, it worked great! But.... a few caveats..

It was soooo frustrating! My goodness I cursed like a sailor. Getting those pieces out of the original hole was impossible for me. I made another access hole on the other side of the windshield. I used a wire and pushed the pieces through. I have no idea how he got them out.

I recommend keeping them all and reassembling them on your bench to see if you got them all. Otherwise they could rattle and be annoying.

Also, the tool to press the rivnut. I bought that tool pictured in the PDF. I gave it to a bodybuilder friend and he could not crush a steel rivnut. Maybe the guy in the pdf used aluminum or brass, steel cannot be crushed with that tool by a mortal man.

I ended up sticking a three foot piece of pipe on each handle for more leverage.

But.. it worked and it's fine! - Thanks everyone.
