Full Version: Streetka Soft Top Rear Window

Today I have cracked the rear window on my wife’s Streetka, I was under the impression that it just zipped in so no big problem, or so I thought. Ford will supply one for a Kings ransom so I thought it better to shop around and get more info. I have been told from a soft top supplier that it doesn’t really zip in like the conventional zip because it has to be bonded to the rag which is expensive. And it has also been suggested that the only solution is a new top. Can anyone offer an unbiased opinion on this?
I have seen a couple of posts where a rear window has been successfully replaced but no indication as to which company or cost incurred. Help please as I not the most popular bunny in the nest.

Might be worth looking for a hard top,they appear on Ebay quite often,if you have storage space for it when your cruising :P

Hi!
I'm french so excuse me for my poor english. you can check this website:

[url="http://www.comptoirducabriolet.com/boutique/index.php?cPath=149"]http://www.comptoirducabriolet.com/boutiqu...x.php?cPath=149[/url]

It's a french website, they are building rear windows for convertibles or complete tops, it's very good quality, and it fit perfectly the car. (I have bought them a complete soft top for an old suzuki vitara).If I remember well, you can find a rear window for 80€, and maybe you can have it tinted.

Hope it can help you B)

I have just bought a streetka which had a slit in the back window, so my Garage guy got a new one from Ford. He had a heck of a time fitting it, because there is a "zip", but it is not a conventional type one. There is also a lot of very tough velcro all around the window. However, he did it in the end, so yes, it can be done. The price here ( in France) of a new one was around 420 euros, so that's about £4OO !!!!!
