PLEASE HELP. The back window of my beloved KA soft top has cracked today. Was told by my Ford dealer that spare windows are not available. A whole new hood would be required at a cost of nearly £800.00. Can't believe this, as it would appear that it is zipped in, and why zip the window in if it were not possible to replace.
I know nothing mechanical about cars, other than I love her to bits

There are two options that are better than being screwfed by Ford-

 

Buy a new window panel and fit yourself (or ask someone to do it if you don't feel confident)-

Or send the existing one away for a refurb (and again refit yourself/ask someone nicely to do it for you)-

Ford won't sell a repair kit when they can sell you a whole roof.
Unfortunate but true, it's all about profit.
