Soft top channel

Trying to replace my soft top. The channel in the middle (2nd?) is broken. Was broken when I removed it. Not sure if this will make any difference if I don't slide the fabric into the channel. Tried to glue it back but it's not holding the fabric in place.

Where can I get a replacement. PP doesn't seem to have it in their parts list.

Scroll down to the top section and see if you can find the part number of the piece you need.

I have a soft top in need of a rear window in my garage that I
m trying to on-load as I've replaced my top with an '04 glass window. Let me know if you'd like to use my frame for parts. It's off a '99. I'm located in NJ. See my post in the parts forum with the list of top parts available. Good luck with the replacement...
