So a bough this jeep back in November and just this past week I found out a part of the sunrider is broken. Currently I'm at work in northern Alberta in the middle of the wildfires and evacuations and have no way of fixing it and I cant get it to latch closed again I need help trying to fix it until I can get back to the city

You should be able to straighten out the broken hinged part, close the top, then slide the sunrider locking sleeve back over the bow to hold it in place. If the top is too taut to get the header latched down as is, pull the rear corners and rear window bar out to give you some slack -- you can resecure the rear after the front is latched in place.

Yeah common issue with these plastic parts and easy fix. Simply unscrew the screws, remove the hinge knuckle and replace it with the same plastic version or locate the metal versions.
