04 TJ Unlimited Softtop Rear Window Zipper Problem

I am told I must buy a new roof because my rear window zipper is broken. It doesn't look broken except for some reason the window won't stretch across the opening. The top is in excellent shape. Any ideas ? I have a new Bestop window and new sliders.

Do you have the side windows in? If not try adjusting your rear sails. They will move in a little.

Well who told you the zipper is broken? Dealer, mechanic, buddy?

Often if you loosen the top and let it and the window sit out in the hot sun for a while you can zip it right together then tighten to top back up.

If the zipper is broken, most upholstery shops can replace em.
