Problems with Upper Sliders

I have searched e-bay and the internet and can't find parts for the sliders. The sliders are for my hard top and the drivers side glass is broken (it currently has a creaky piece of plexiglass in there). Neither slider is secured, the bolts just slide into the door inserts and don't screw into anything. Where can I get replacement parts and is there anything that I can do to secure the upper's to my lower door?

If its a bestop upper they won't sell you replacement parts, you have to buy the whole upper.

We are talking about soft upper door sliders right? I have a set that the frames are shot around the glass so are sitting in my shed. Clips that hold them closed are broken. As far as mine look going into the lower door they just slide in there are no bolts it is all metal frame. I would need to see what you are talking about. If mine will work I will sell you the glass for both doors for $75 plus shipping. PM me if you are interested and I will take some pictures and you can see if they will work.

They do sell the window lock clips seperate. I contacted them when my fake BT slider clip broke and they told me $10ea ($40 for all 4 plus shipping). Needless to say my sliders are sitting in the shed having been able to get replacement skins for my OEM frames for $50 incl shipping.

I had seen from Bestop that they only sold you the whole cartridge and wouldn't supply individual parts out of them... Maybe that's changed!

The PO of the Jeep I have somehow broke the frames for the soft skin upper door sliders. He put a (to large bolt) bolt with washer that eventually completely broke the frame. I have since repaired it using much smaller bolts and it will hold pretty much indefinitely but looks rough.I was wondering if the actual frame that slides into the lower door was the same as a zippered soft skin upper. If so can I buy just the replacement soft skins and tear the slider frame apart putting the soft skin on?

Nope. The slider window frame is different than the zippered ones.
