Convertible top coming away from glass window


This is a common problem. At the factory, the top material is bonded to the glass. That bond is breaking down. You can use Gorilla taps or urethane adhesive, but you will eventually need a new window unit.
The window unit is separate from the actual top. The top must be partially removed to replace the window unit.

This problem is very common and is known as delamination.
If the problem is not too far advanced, you can repair it with Urethane adhesive. It is used by glass shops to install windshields.
Your top and window unit are two separate parts.
If the problem is beyond repair, you will need to remove the rear half of the top and replace the window unit.

2003 eclipse spyder convert top prob


Unfortunately, this is not something you can fix yourself. You will need to take the car to either the dealer or a shop which specializes in fixing convertible tops, headliners, etc (commonly called an automotive trim shop) Most used car dealers have a trim shop that they can recommend.

2000 mustang covertible


The front guide (that is attached to the window and slides into the regulator) has probably come off or is lose. These are glued to the window and hard to get to. Best advise is to remove the window, re-glue, then replace window in the regulator guides.

The regulator is the scissor mechanism that raises and lowers the window.
