A shop that works on boat covers, canvas awnings, or convertible tops should be able to repair it.

SOURCE: Can a broken zipper on a Jeep Wrangler soft top

It can be repaired, but take into account the condition of the existing window. If it's starting to yellow or shows signs of small cracks or clouding your better off replaing it.

SOURCE: The zipper on the rear window of my 2004 Jeep Wrangler has a spot where the teeth are not properly aligned. I can't get either zipper over the spot, so I can't remove the window . Any sugges

You should be able to pop the unaligned teeth apart with a pair of needle nose pliers. You will then be able to zip over them.

Zipper will not work on the rear window. Trying to determine if I need to replace the rear window. OEM top, believe it is made by Besttop, sunrider version. Have had problems with this window for last...


Have you confirmed the alignment of the lead/end part of the open-side of the zip, with the closed/slider side.?
Getting the first bit aligned properly it vital.
Whether it's a metal or nylon zip, a bit of lubricating spray will help get the two sides going.
You may need to get a hairdryer (or heat gun if you're very, very careful) to warm-up the cover to allow it to stretch into position, if it's gone stiff in the garage whilst you've not been using it.?
Don't force it, ease it.
Forcing the zipper is likely to tear the stitching &/or the vinyl.
Best of luck.

Rear soft top window is cracked. Can I just replace it or do I need an entire new soft top?


You can have the rear window replaced. Bring the top to canvas repair shop (boat canvas shop) and get a quote.

The small storage compartment in the back of my 2007 2-door jeep wrangler Rubicon is wet, soaked with water. Where is it coming from?


If your Jeep has a soft top -

I have a 2007 Unlimited and has the same problem. My Jeep is a soft top and the water came from the rain and a poor seal of the back window. Part of the problem came from the displacement of the plastic "c" shaped "rear window bar holder" that clips on to the rear on either side of rear window. Ocasionally the clip pops out of place and breaks the seal between the rubber on the window and the rear sides of the Jeep.

Soft top-1993 Jeep Wrangler YJ


OK I have a yj and you start from the windshield put the snaps/or what ever yours is on the top of the doors then down the side or the doors then under the back side window then around the curve and this is the hardest part then your tailgate also make sure your bars on the inside are loseuntil the top is on then thighting those bars and you should have a nice tight top but belive me it is hard and you might need a flathead screw driver for the corners. Good luck and a jeep wave to you!

My zipper windows don't work anymore...


There is no fix.
The top has to be installed and pulled back along the sides so you have minimal gap at the zippers.
You can also get a new top.
