Soft Top Hinge Broke

Putting top down both plastic hinges broke {the ones that go under the sun rider slide bar} I would like to replace them.
Could any of you come up with a part # or know who would have these plastic hinges for 2012 2 door.
Thanks in advance.

Do you mean after the dealer replaced the broken hinges, a previously non-existent bad leak started? Ugh... that really sucks.

Had mine replaced under warranty today. Jeep is 2 years 3 months old. Part number for the hinge is 5166017-AB. This is for the right hand side but parts guy said they fit both sides.

remember the warranty is also restricted by your mileage. In this case it's 3 years or 36k miles, whichever comes first.
