? 90 convertible owners only ?

Recommended Posts

I am toying with the idea of reproducing the top release cable for the 1990 Reatta Convertible.

Question 1: How often does this break?

Question 2: Have you ever had one break?

Question 3: Where, how or what does break?

Question 4: Do you know for sure why it broke?

Question 5: Did you fix it?

Question 6: Where did you get parts to fix it?

Question 7: Are any other currently available parts interchangeable?

Just trying to determine the demand and supply if any.

I've had probably 5 requests for it in the past year, but most of the time, it's the handle that's broken. Not the cable.

I've come across two in that same past year in parts cars. Both were broken.

I have owned 3 1990 convertibles and have never had a cable or lever problem.

I have only heard of one lever problem and that is the same as a Buick Century (and probably the similar cousins) hood lever, just polish off the hot stamp that shows the hood.

I always lube everything related to the cable as soon as a 'vert is acquired and try to be gentle with anything plastic.
