2005 V6 convertible

I have the 2005 convertible, garage kept with only 12k miles on it. About a month ago I had it out for a drive enjoying one of the last times to have the top down. When putting it back up, the bars that raise the top up and down snapped in half. I saw there is a bulletin advising about this but not a recall notice. Has anyone had any luck getting Ford to take care of this? The local dealership wants $2,000 to make the repair. Any thoughts are appreciated.

Re: 2005 V6 convertible

if it fits the TSB and is within the period of that warranty then they should fix it. It might be out of the time limit or what not. It cant be that hard to replace the part though its usually easy to take out the back seat to access those parts.

You can price the parts at tousleyfordparts.com to get an idea on how much you can save on parts alone.
