@rob the elder

I assume you are referring to the torsion bar being broken. I'm pretty sure those parts are still available through a dealer parts department. Rob the Elder has a pretty good description of how to replace these, somewhere, if you can find it. In order to replace a torsion bar, you need to remove both the rear fascia and the rear bumper cover. It is a PITA job, in my opinion, best left to a dealer to do.

YMMV

:dunno:

Forum member Riggs314 would also be someone else to reach out too since he's removed his decklid several times to install his Edag hardtop. Let us know how it works out for you.
