soft top zipper problem
 
ok so i put the soft top off an 03 rubi on my wrangler today good condition no rips but while i was zipping the windows i forced the rear drivers side at the very end and it separated the teeth like a half inch behind the zipper. I cant unzip now. Any suggestions?

Get a friend to work the zipper and you push the zipper together use a light oil if necessary like 3 and 1 oil should work. Work the zipper slowly will take a little force.

You can do it. Mine did that but the zipper fell apart the whole way across. Yank it and force it back as hard as you can. It'll go even if it breaks it was broken anyways. But I beat on mine badly and all the teeth are still fine. Once it's off I put a nice wax on all of the zippers. Then take some pliers and squeeze the zipper head. Apparently that's what caused my zippers to not connect properly. Hope this helps

By zipper head I meant that little thing you pull to zip it up
