7 Pull the roof and cable from the rail and release the cable.
8 With the roof frame upright, unbolt the strap retaining brackets.
9 Remove the headlining wire screw and unhook the wire.
10 Disconnect the gas struts.
11 Lower the front of the roof then unscrew the three mounting bolts on each side.
12 Lift the complete folding roof from the car.
13 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but do not tighten the mounting bolts or tensioning block nuts until the front of the roof is locked and the rear beading is in the rail (see illustration). It may be necessary to use a tamping tool to ensure that the tensioning cable is fully inserted in the rail. A little sealant should be applied at the points where the cable passes through the covering.
