Boxster S 986 facelift soft top with glass window

Hi,

does anyone have experience installing soft top (glass window) of a facelift (986) to 986 2001? I want to buy just canvas roof with window and keep the original mechanism.

Thanks so much for your advice!

It's not possible to use the 2003-2004 canvas on a 1997-2002 roof frame, as the later roof has an extra bow in the rear to correctly accommodate the (larger compared to aftermarket) window glass.

In case you buy a canvas including frame that will fit?

My new roof with glass for my 98 will be here tomorrow. You can buy new tops for the older generation with a glass window. I bough mine at Autotops direct. I am not sure if they will ship internationally since I see you are in Hungary.

As they above you need the frame and roof. I did mine last year with a roof of a 2004 model, mines 2002. It took 2 of us about 3hrs and is relatively straight forward. Roof cost 425 and couple of beers for my friend, happy days
