If you've never done one you are in for some work..... start in the top storage compartment where the top meets the car you will see a metal band w 8. 13mm bolts remove all and band use caution the band does have sharp edges. Once that's done remove the inner top small torx screws (from back to front) I recommend replacing inner top at the same time or sags and the side flaps will hang in your face, once the inner is out of the way you will see strips if fabric clamped to the bow remove all kinda pay attention on the amount of fabric clamped to much and .....rrrriiiippp. to little and flap flap. The front plactic cover just pops off be nice to it cause it does break kinda easy. Remove screws and said top. Install new w top partially open and in full sun so material is warm and pliable. Reverse and enjoy, pat your self on the back at a job well done and saved money in your pocket.
