Roof part identification

Today I went to lower my roof. The rear cover would not come vertical enough to let the roof go over it. I noticed that the pictured part on the left corner cover was broken. It pulls the corner cover clear of the headrest. I know that the corner cover got caught on the head rest when I was investigating the problem, so I am not sure if the failure of the corner cover to be pulled out of the way was a cause, or a result, of the pictured part breaking.

First, what I need to know, is the pictured part the part #24 in the diagram (strap). Once I replace that part, I can further investigate the roof opening failure.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, but no luck at any of those places using the name or part(s) number. I had tried those before posting. I cannot even find the part on the diagrams.

Dealer?

TENSIONING ROPE

Finally found the part number with some help by jbanks15. The part diagram I found was a little different and had the name hinge in it.

I went to the dealer and found part 140 listed as tensioning cable. It was listed about $25 more at the dealer than the 'hinge' part. I figured what the heck and paid the dealer $75. I know I will get the right part now and I did not know what shipping was going to be anyway.

After the part goes on, I will see if helps my roof function.

Thanks for all the help.

Been looking for the same part and also found other part images that don't look right.

There is a YouTube video on installing the bugger. Hard to believe the price for such a small part!

How did it the installation go?

I succumbed to buying at the dealer.

Watching the video was a great help. A little fussy, but certainly doable.
