Broken Soft Top Near Front Clip

Forgive me for not knowing the right terminology but I am new to Wranglers (well that and I am not a car girl either lol) I have had my 2007 4 door for about a year. Last spring I was taking the soft top off and the plastic cracked in half on the frame right next to the clip on the driver's side - where you clip it in to the top of the window. I can still clip it, but there is a little space between and I noticed that in heavy rain, water drips in threw the clip and onto my visor.

Do I need a whole new soft top or is this a piece I can fix? If so, how much should it cost me?

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Not quite sure what part you are referring to, but I think you mean the main header that clips top of the windscreen? Can you take a pic to show us the broken bit? If you might mean the header, see this page at Quadratec, I think you mean part number 30, scroll down and click on the part number.

Is it the piece that is attached to the top (drip rail) or the part the drip rail clips into (door surround)?

I will take a picture after work and post it, but it is the piece that is attached to the top.

Have a look at the link I put in for Quadratec - it has a full exploded diagram with all parts listed. Should be able to find the broken bit in there and order a replacement.
