Having a problem with the rear zip up window

So I've researched a lot about this but nothing seems to work I went to the dealership and they are talking some ridiculous numbers. It's just a zipper problem. Anyway it's stuck up and I'd like to put it down since the weather is getting nice I can get the zipper up about 5 inches but then gets stuck where there is a gap in the zipper if anyone could help that would be great thank you

Because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

I have zipper issues also. Someone told me Burt's bees or wd40 to lubricate the zipper. I take mine out and leave them out for the summer. Anyway I really didn't try either of these. You may try them. Also instead of the dealer try an upholstery shop. If your zipper is just done they can replace it which it what I will probably do.

They make a special zipper lubricant that you can buy. I think Bestop makes it. Not 100% sure tho.
