No the clips are in it...it seems like the struts I purchased are too strong or require too much pressure to allow the window to close

That is a pain- hopefully someone can chime in with the brand they’ve had success with. Any hardtop owners out there with ideas??

Probably a "one size fits all" strut. The correct ones are matched to the weight of the hood, hatch, etc.

Not something you want to stress too much or you'll be buying the glass as well.

I’ve replaced struts but never had that issue. Can you post some pictures of what’s going on? It sounds like if/when you get it shut it just opens again. Is that right?
