The entire top system is made for ChryslerPurchased a 2008 ragtop in December 2010. Had a check engine light (minor emissions leak) that would not trigger a code. Contacted corporate and they worked with the dealer...finally replaced the fuel tank (at no cost to me,) and problem solved.:)
Now, one of the plastic hinges that hold the plastic unit in the trunk that must be opened to hold the convertible top when opened has broken. Contacted corporate and this unit is not manufactured by Chrysler, so they do not sell the part. Whatever mental genius engineer who did not foresee a PLASTIC part breaking, should be shot. This would be an easy part to provision for as all three hinges are identical! Anyone have any idea where I might purchase some hinges? My husband has bought some metal hinges that he can rivet in...but we'd rather have the right type of hinge. Thanks for any help.
by Karman (yes the same folks that made the Karman Gia classic)It
is assembled in Germany and shipped to Chrysler in Sterling Hts MI They provide the same mechanism for Audi,VW,Porsche,and others. Try snd see if the hinge in one of these other cars would match yours
