Does anyone have the procedure for replacing the soft top tension straps for the 1998 E36 Convertible?
Thanks

Thanks. It has the operation of it but not the procedure for the tension strap replacement. I think I will attempt it with just the sketch but it will probably take me twice as long.

Did you figure out how to replace the straps?
If so could you share? I have a 97 328i and need to replace both-

I also need to replace the convertible soft top straps.... at least that is what the BMW dealership diagnosed and quoted a $1,000 estimate. Were you able to locate clear instructions on how to replace them? Thanks in advance for guidance.

I just replaced my Tension Straps on my 1996 BMW 328I. I have done a video on the Headliner removal, Tension Strap removal which are already posted at http://www.unitedtravelcenter.com/BMW_Projects.html I will be posted the installation files for the Tension Straps, and the Headliner 9/27 -9/28. You can also send me an e-mail with any additional questions

hello agazza2. I can't access the video you posted on replacement of the top strap of your convertible top. COuld you please send me a link to it? Many thanks. The BMW shop quoted me $3500 to replace it! I will try to do it myself.
