You have been immense help to me in the past with repairs on my 0lder Sebring Convertibles.

I have a 2001 with a new top that was totaled.
I bought a 2005 that needs a top.

I would like to swap the tops - but the good from the 2001 onto the 2005 and the ratty one from the 2005 on the 2001 before it goes to the junk-yard.

None of my books or other resources show me how to do this - can you provide any assistance?

As always I am grateful for your time!


ANSWER: Hi Alan,
There are 15 pages in the '04/05 manuals I have on CD. I can copy the pages and attach them to an email I send to you directly. So tell me your email address and I can do that. But don't use @, instead use "at". otherwise the address is erased automatically.
Please read the PS (below) and respond. Glad I have been so helpful to you.

QUESTION: Hi Roland - as always, you are an incredible resource for which I am supremely grateful!

A assume since the tops are interchangeable that the instructions should be the same for the '01, or close enough to get me through, right?

In any case...

You can send it to at gmail dot c0m - and I thank you more than I know how to say!

You are the MAN!!


Hi Alan,
The instructions are the same. I don't know for certain whether there were any significant modifications of the top dimensions so you might want to verify that the component part numbers for '01 and '05 tops are identical, at a dealer parts counter.
I will do the copying later today and get the pages to you soon thereafter.
Thanks for the ratings and nominations.
