Soft top rear window bar
 
I cant tell what is up with mine, I know you are able to "remove" it so you can roll up the rear window, but when I installed my soft top today, mine wouldn't budge. Not sure if im trying to remove it wrong, or if its screwed in, but I cant get it off. I don't want to break it by bulling too hard either.

Any ideas? I can provide a pic if needed.

?????? You twist up a little counter clockwise to remove from the clips on either side, down clockwise to install.

Did you pull the little plastic clips on the soft top out of the channel on each side first? One on each side, about two inches or so long.

Those little clip/covers go on and off when door is closed to keep the bottom of the "window" taught. The slider bar fits into the receiver channel a spefific way and will "lock" into position when zips are down. You may need to slide the bar either way so it's a perfect fit. There is a specific way mine slides in. I have a supertop from bestop.

I didn't notice any clips. When I installed it I just slid in the rear window in the channel (new to jeeps, dealer sold me a bad top saying it was good, but wouldn't replace it). It was on the entire time. Do you have a specific pic for the clips?

That's what I thought, but I rotated it a lot and it didn't seem to move. Is it hard or generally easy to get out?
