I'm assuming that you're talking about a vinyl couch? You need to condition the material. It's too dry. Use a leather conditioner or an auto upholstery conditioner. To fix the places that have already peeled, you'll need a vinyl repair kit. You can find them in automotive stores, some Walmarts in the crafts department, Amazon, etc. Make sure you get the full kit, not the refill. The full kit comes with tubs of different colors, various pieces of fabric with patterns that you can use to match the pattern of your vinyl, and some come with little irons to melt and set the repair material. It's really easy to do. There are enough colors provided where you can mix the color you need for your repair. Hope this helps.
Bad counter balance springs. Either return to vendor or bring it to a window repair place to repair with better balance device. Reliabilt is really a cheaply made product. Forget the box stores, try a local window/door place with a life time guaranty. You can still install yourself to save $ and it will take 3-6 weeks for fabrication but the quality it years beyond box stores.
Talk with a panel shop or a vehicle upholsterer but as the vinyl is normally glued on with contact cement the I suspect that there will be paint damage. It may help to use a heat gun to soften the vinyl as you go but do not get too enthusiastic with the heat as it may damage the paint underneath . Which ever way it will be a slow job
An upholster will be able to help you here I have used vinyl tops on cars and from experience they are the best rust producers ever invented . Over time the UV rays from the sun produce small pin size holes in the vinyl and the moisture gets in and the rust starts . Just a suggestion to check vinyl roofs in the wreckers and see how many are rust rotten -- if you want to keep the car.
Your window is not attached to the top material.
Both the top and the window are attached directly to the frame.
