I recently bought a 2001 TJ with a hardtop, but with half doors that have soft uppers with glass sliders. There are no logos or information on the manufacturer, so I'm not sure if they are OEM/mopar or an aftermarket brand.

Does anyone know where I can get replacement hardware, specifically the clips in the picture that hold the windows shut?

Thanks!

Hey, absolutely Andy, here's some pics of what I did. Couldn't locate the clips anywhere, and and did see some say that you can get them from Best top, but that they want an arm and a leg for them. If you see one of the pics, the "spring" than holds them in lock position, is just a piece of plastic, that's always going to break. If you carefully pry the latch off, see the pics, just two little ears hold it in place, you can remove any of whats left of the plastic spring, or flap. I snipped mine flush with wire cutter, then find a good size spring, (I had them in my stock, spring collection, lol), and push the assembly back together, with a little lube. Works and locks better than new

Thanks man! You know, I've never used that, but do use Krylon fusion on lots of plastic, I think that would work better. I actually used some back to black trim restore on mine, and their at least not all dried out.
