2002 Chrysler Sebring conv. canvas separated from rear window

2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible the canvas has become detached from the rear window. The convertible repair shop says the window will have to be replaced with a new window that is heat sealed to the canvas and then installed. The cost estimate is $450 is that reasonable? They also said it could be glued down which may get me six month to a year service. I am planning to use E6000 glue. Has anyone tried this procedure and are there other glues that would give better performance?

The correct method is the heat as it is heat welded in place using a micro wave process ( the same process as welding plastic tarps etc)
anything else will be strickly short term and will fail when it is really pouring down
to see if the quote is reasonable ring other shops and get quotes from them
I would expect that what has been quoted would be in the ball park figure of other quotes

SOURCE: how do I replace the door seal

like much refrigeration, the door seal is near impossible to replace - it is foamed in. you are faced with a new door at vast cost.

SOURCE: Glue gun support

put a towel over the glue and iron over the towl. the glue will melt and the towel will soak it up. That works for other things like crayons also.

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.

SOURCE: Speaker was dropped - Tweeter Magnet came off -

Clean the mating surfaces very well, mark on the side of the magnet (arrow or dot) which surface of the magnet was glued (shouldn't make a bit of difference, I'm just a little anal) and then use any brand of quick setting 'super glue.' This glue will not only hold well but will also introduce the thinnest film between the magnet and 'keeper.' Too much space between mating surfaces can weaken the field and reduce the efficiency causing an imbalance in volume relative to the other tweeter. If anything else is loose, the tweeter is junk because any shift of the voice coil will cause the speaker to distort or rattle.
If you need to replace any speaker ever, replace both channels or have possibly lousy matching between channels.

Need to repair a back window on a 2005 chrysler convertible


probably not --if it has torn along the stitching then it will be too small to restitch. Tearing of any material indicates that it has reached it's service life so best consider a new piece in the repair.

Replacing the back window in a 2002 convertible


The rear window in your car is a separate part from the top so it can be replaced without replacing the top.
You must, however remove most of the top.
Windows are available on Ebay and instructions are available on DVD here.

I have a 2005 chrysler sebring convertible in 2006 i noticed the top fraying and ware on the canvas sides . my dealer dragged there feet on service hoping i would go away. however they did say they would...


As long as any warranty problem was documented with the dealership while in warranty, the same coverage will apply even if the car is now out of warranty.

Get the money from the dealer, buy a top and get installation in structions here.
