What is this?

I had my hard top off for a few days. Since I reinstalled the top, there has been a squeak near this. What does it do?

I think it pivots down to run the panels without the top.

you are right! Take a closer look....it is actually hinged and when you pivot it to a 90 is when you are to be able to use just the freedom panels no back section of the hardtop.

They did this to allow the threaded fasteners enough clearance with out causing damage to the panels.

Good to know! I've run just the panels having no idea that it even did anything.
