Windstop brackets on roll bars

the roll bar brackets for the windstop on my wife's 02 S are broken. Does anybody have the part numbers and the instructions on how to replace? Thinking about doing the same on my 01 base just to be sure i don't lose my piece of plastic. any help would be appreciated.

thanks

The clips come as a kit with both side clips, the middle thing, and pop-rivets. You will need a drill to drill off the head of the old pop-rivet and a pop rivet gun. Each clip uses 1 rivet. The kit has more rivets then you need.

I've seen the kit on ebay. Do a search with keywords Boxster and wind and you should find it.

Good luck!

The guy at Sunset in Oregon told me he has two customers who buy things like this kit by the dozens to resell on eBay. He said he has a customer who buys ten eye tow hook screw thingies a month to sell on eBay because tow truck drivers remove them and they don't get put back in the toolkit.

Sooooo, save yourself some money and cut out the middle man. Buy from Sunset straight away!
