Zipper issue

I have a little issue with the zipper on the back drivers side window. It has pulled apart and the little plastic clasp is cracked. Is there a way to replace this zipper or fix the one that is on there? I can't take my top up and down like it is!! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks guys

If the zipper clasp is shot so is the zipper. You will have to get a new zipper sewn in. Not easy to find anyone to do it. If your stitching is bad you are ready for a new top.

Much easier to replace the top. Please fill in your profile before asking more questions, it helps others to help you.

Sorry for the bad news.

I had a zipper replaced at a place that does boat canvas. Cost about $35

Interesting! I wonder what and if they would do the seams on old tops to save them?

I have replaced a couple of tops only due to the stitching rotting and breaking.
