TJ Hardtop liftgate help needed please!

The previous owner broke the rear liftgate glass but when they replaced it they lost the parts that connects the lift cylinders to the window glass. I found a part called "Ball Stud Back" but it's unclear if it includes all the parts that I'm looking for as it appears to just be a bracket.

I do have one of the brackets still attached to one cylinder but I'm not entirely sure how the mechanism goes together as far as where it meets the glass. If it's not too much trouble it would be much appreciated if someone would be willing to please post a pic of the glass attachment as it will really help me understand how it goes together. What really sucks is the fact that the parts being attached to the hardtop means there's a snowball's chance in hell I'll ever find the parts used somewhere.

Thanks all!

I don't know if this helps but... These are all the parts that you need to attach the lift gate to the top.


I found this in the owners manual.

Thanks but unfortunately the bottom pic only shows the connection to the hard top and it's the glass connection I don't understand. The item that is called a Ball Stud Back is #5 in the top picture though but it doesn't clearly show how it attaches to the glass so I don't know if that's the right part or contains all the parts I need. It's $34 so it's a little too expensive to just take a chance on since I'll need two. But thank you for your help.

Actually, looking at that pic it appears the Ball Stud Back is the bracket that attaches the cylinder to the hardtop. So how does the lift cylinder attach to the glass?
