07 convertible question

So I bought this low mileage unit for a steal but the convertible motor is missing as well as a few other of the convertible parts. My question is would the earlier gen convertible parts work or did they change the parts? I found a great deal on motor, transmission and arms off a 00 model but wanna make sure they will work prior to making the purchase. Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks lads

I n my opinion even if they would work, and I don't think the arms will even if the motor and transmission would, it's not worth the trouble. All those components have a limited life span depending on use, age and maintainence. You may find yourself replacing again in less than a year. Night the bullet and buy replacement parts. You can instal yourself and save some money. That's just me though.

Mike,

Try these guys in the UK. I have bought many parts from Steve, and he's a fair and honest guy:

I'm stateside now, wouldn't shipping negate any savings you'd get?

Please consider/contact Woody on the forum for used parts. 'itsnotanova'. I have used him. Quick service and more than fair prices.

Look at the article on replacing the hood/top from ''97--'02 with the '03-'04 version to see what parts can be reused. Thanks to Maurice.
