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.
