Default Golde Top Parts List & Availabilty

I am going to re-post this post regarding availability of Golde Top parts. I am also going to make this a "sticky" post so it stays at the top of this Forum and can easily be found by those looking for Golde Top Parts. JohnG, you might want to grab this and put it in the TRL if it is not already there. Please note the location of the company and what this post says..

Thanks to Kev, I am able to share this information with you regarding parts for the Golde Top Sun Roof. Although this is a VW website, it is my understanding that the Golde Top parts for it will also fit the Golde Tops for our Tbirds. Kev can correct me if I am wrong. The cables needed for that Alfa Romeo I posted about should also work with it. The Golde Top was pretty much interchangeable between car makes, so I understand. This website is in England, so you will have to communicate with them regarding payment in USD.

Default sunroof parts

Some time ago I saw somewhere that someone was reproducing the pot metal cable connector for the sunroof. Does anyone know who the person is and how to make contact with him? Thanks for any help.

Hi Ken,

This is the company that carries a lot of the Golde Top parts here in the US. Call them, tell them what you need, and see if they have it. If they do, please post here for others to know.

http://www.aslauto.com/

It might have been John Draxler of Tbird Ranch that you were thinking of that has that part. You might try him also.

As a final chance, there is the VW company in England that stocks a lot of parts I am told, and that they fit our Golde Tops too. Their website is:

http://www.vwheritage.com/bbt/Stock-...-305%2FA%20%2F

Let us know if any of these places are able to fill your need, please.

Default sunroof parts

I see there is a pair of brass cable connectors on ebay for $105.00. Well I thought I would try to make them and they turned out really nice. I used a piece of flat steel stock, cut a piece with a hacksaw,drilled a small hole just big enough for a very small file and went to work. Once I had the hole fit to the shaft which turns the connector I the started grinding and shaping the piece. That done, I drilled the hole for the pin I made out of round steel stock. As I mentioned above, they really turned out nice and are much stronger than pot metal or brass. Also, if I can do it anyone can.
Ken

Hi Tim,

Slide down this thread and you will find some companies who might be able to help you. Also check the Technical Resource library here on the Forum, above this sub-forum, and on the Home page Technical tab. You might also send Rockin' Kev, in England, a Private Message (PM). If anyone knows where to find these parts, if you can still get them, he will.

Default Sunroof Guide Brackets

I have recently found and installed a new set (4) of guide brackets on my sunroof. Here is the information on where I found them.

A search of the BMW parts sites online provided a part number (54-12-1-815-185) and I ordered them from “bmwpartscenter.net”. http://www.bmwpartscenter.net/partlo...?siteid=215996 The part number shown on the part is “100 556 612”.

The parts were $7.48 each. There was $4.00 extra shipping since these parts had to come from Germany. The standard shipping and handling was $11.95. The total for all four parts was $45.87. Not too bad for having a sliding sunroof again.

The parts ordered are a little smaller than the original but they did the job. I extended the slot on the back end of the parts to get a little more adjustment. This was the only adjustment I made and it may not have been required since the gaskets keep the panel centered.

I hope this helps other sunroof owners.

Brad, thank you very much for this information. I am sure other Golde Top owners will be thrilled to have this information. I will add the information you provided to the Technical Resource Library Golde Top section so it will be easily found. I went to their site, copy/pasted in the first part number you gave and up it came!

Default Golde Top Parts List & Availabilty

I am in contact with Roy Lock again, who has a lot of information regarding Golde Tops. He said last night that the cables are available again. Someone is making them again and he sent me the contact information. This is through a Porche source, but it is my understanding that these cables fit any Golde Top. NLA Parts is marketing them. You can also search their website for other Golde Top parts they might have. Here is the link.

http://www.nlaparts.com/store/advanc...1420a&x=14&y=1

Some time back I posted a link to a VW company in England that stocks a lot of parts that also fit our Golde Tops. That link no longer works, but their main link does. You can search their website to see what they might have or email them. Here is the link.
