I've researched your issue and if the window has fallen out of the canvas top, there is no way to reinsert the window back in. Tthe top is worn out and the only way to fix it is replacing your top with a new one.

Hi Tom, There are 2 sites on the web about a VW Bettle and Corvette convertible with the same window problem. Both sites talk about using the 3M products, Glass Primer and Window Weld. Both excellent results. What do you think? Thanks
