Soft Top Zipper Fabric Ripped

Hey guys,

So last night I was trying to take off the soft top and the back window zipper jammed. I tried my best to get it off, but it wouldn't go up or down. I started yanking on it and the insertion pin at the bottom ripped off of the fabric and now it won't zip back up.

What can I do to repair this? Glue gun won't work, tried calling Jeep dealership and of course, the service department said they will nickle and dime us to get approved under warranty and 'take photos, send to Chrysler, and see if it gets approved' A.K.A it won't get approved.

The only other option is to get the entire top replaced? That's $400 for a damn top I've had for 2 weeks.

I'd at least take a shot at getting the approval on a warranty repair. You said its 2 weeks old? I think you have a strong chance of free replacement.
Taking a Jeep hiatus. Be back someday down the road.

you know man, just a thought. try calling some clothing repair/seamstress type places that deal with zippers all the time. they might be able to do something.
