rear window zipper

my rear window has been on and off more times than i can remember, and now, in attempting to put in on, the teeth are not grabbing anymore. some teeth grab, then the zipper skips leaving a gap, then some more will grab... i've tried wd40, to no avail.

anyone else have this issue...suggestions?

You can try some pliers to squeeze the zipper puller. If that doesn't help, look on eBay for Jeep zipper pullers. I had to do buy some a few months ago and now it works great.

If at first you don't succeed, improvise!

Here's what I did. Get really pissed off and cut it to ribbons with your pocket knife, then buy a Viking top. < True story.
Just getting to work is an adventure.
