Need to remove convertible top for repair

Recommended Posts

I recently had some vandals do some damage to the rear quarter window and convertible top of my 99 cab. I have replaced the lift arms, the bracket that attaches the top to the body, and the quarter window. It looks like the took a large hammer and just beat the heck out of the rear part of the top causing the frame to twist. So it also looks like I need to find and replace the back frame below the window and the cross member just above the window. Yet having a bit of trouble in finding used replacement parts; I may just have to buy new ones. Until I find those pieces I am just going to put on the hard top and remove the whole convertible top.

Now the issues: 1. I noticed that, when checking the alignment of the top I pushed the top button to bring up the convertible top, the rear quarter windows went down and now they will not come up. Is there a sequence I need to initiate? I have placed direct power to the motors and they work fine.

2. Is there an issue with removing the convertible top and using the hard top for a temp. period of time?

Thanks in advance for your help.

To get the rear windows to move you need to press the micro switch that the top latch (hook) hits when it pulls the top closed against the windshield header. You can press it with your finger.

Shouldn't be any problem just using the hardtop. You might get some rattling from the unsupported clamshell.
