Does anyone know where this convertible top strap should attach?



It flops around and makes a lot of noise when the windows are down. I can't see where it attaches on the other side so before I start taking things off I thought I woyld see if anyone has a hot tip for me.

Thanks,

Steve

I am blocked there from time to time as well, it is because of Comcast, my ISP. It does not that I use work email and other emails that are not @Comcast.com (or whatever it is) and they report my IP from time to time as a "spammer" and RennTech subscribes to one of those services. I have followed their KB articles, blocked the ports they said, etc... and it still comes and goes.

The article says if you put the top in service position and then look from the back of the car down to the B-pillar there is a horizontal small bar that should have another clip/strap like this attached, and this one in my picture should clip inboard of that one.

Try going to renntech from another computer or if you have VM hosted somewhere you can try that. For a while my only access to RennTech was from an Azure VM
