Replace or patch rear window soft top R107 560SL

If the small window on the soft top is cracked, is it possible to easily and or inexpensively have it replaced or patched?

thanks

We have a guy here who works on convertible tops of all kinds, sunroofs, interiors, etc. If I owned your car I would find someone like that. I doubt you'll find anything to patch it to look good so you are probably looking at a replacement piece of plastic. That shouldn't cost you very much. In any event, good luck.

I had a 560 SL and had the small window discolored, the plastic is cheap but from what I saw in the shop manual, the window is stitched in place and sealed to the top. I dont recall the pricing but I decide to wait, and then replace the entire top. It is tough to get a sewing machine in place without removing the top. I sold it no one looked at the top since I sold it with the metal roof on.
