Back window creases

Recommended Posts

I understand the need to manually help fold the back window, but regardless of how careful I am I always end up with creases six inches or so from each edge after I put the top back up. I have the accessory box installed on the deck behind the seats, and I think the window may be pressing up against that when the top is down. Does this sound normal?

Also, does anyone know what the fabric flap that hangs from the back edge of the top is for? It has a hard plastic strip on the bottom that runs across the length of the fabric. It appears to be a cosmetic cover, but it seems like the plastic strip should be attached to something.

Its functional as well as cosmetic! The hard plastic strip is supposed to be clipped into two plastic clips, on the rear edge of the appeture (just below where the clamshell locks into). This keeps the fabric taught.

The flap catches water that has drained off the rear window and seeped under the clamshell, the hard plastic strip then channels it to either side of the car, where it can then flow out through the drain pipes under the car.
