I would like to think I’m not the only one this has happened to, or maybe I am. During the replacement process for the front locking cylinder, my roof dropped twice. The second time it snapped the plastic pin that actuates s69/1. I have a bandaid fix on it for now. I looked at the parts list for the R170 and it only shows the whole assembly (170-790-00-71). Does anyone know if there is a replacement for just the pin? Also, another problem I’m having is the latches do not release fully when opening the top. I’m hoping they just need to be greased properly. I’ve sprayed WD-40 on the pivot points for now until I get some proper lube. Are there any adjustments I should look at to fix this problem?
