Does Porsche sell a replacement vinyl window? Has anyone else successfully replaced a vinyl window? Does the entire convertible roof have to come off?

I was considering a boat repair shop since boat covers use vinyl windows all the time, but I wanted your input before I did anything.

Thanks for any input.
I do not believe Porsche replaces just the window. If you go to a dealer it will be the entire top.

Personally, if I were going to redo the top I would go with a GAHH top and get the glass rear window.

When I hear of a shop that does it like original, I'll consider the price.
I know shops that have done it correctly, but they are in the Pasadena/SGV area. Give Tony Callas a call, I'm sure he knows of someone in his area, which is closer to you.
