i used super glue at one time....but the part of the fabric covering the lower part of the glass windo ..keeps coming apart....I wonder if some type of epoxy might work.....they want far too much to replace the rear glass assembly

I found no successful methods and ended up replacing the top after the car flooded (water runs into a reservoir behind the back seat and sits if the drains are plugged (as mine were), causing the floor pan to repeatedly fill up...ugh!) I found a new canvas top (installed) at a local top shop for $1100 - can probably find for less if you shop around. (PS i replaced the whole top because most of the thread in the piping, around the window and some of the seams had rotted out - found no one willing / able to resew or install a new window w/o taking the top off, at which point you may as well replace. Vinyl is obviously a lot cheaper.)

eroosejx00: On the window of my 2006 Sebring attached to vinyl convertible top, i used Household Amazing Goop, purchased at Walmart for like 4 or 5 dollars. The vinyl was coming apart from window in most places, and window would shake while i was driving. The top part of the window was not a problem , so i just used that goop on the lower part of the vinyl top where it's glued, pressed, whatever the factory does to the vinyl top window. I went ahead and took the whole lower part of top loose from window, and used the goop thru from left to right. Just put about an 1/8 " bead, then press firmly against window. To keep together for over 24 hours to cure best, i used that clear packing tape across the window and vinyl top. It has been holding great for over 5 months wiith no problem even when i have the drivers windows down traveling over 50 miles per hour. Try it, should work fine. David

Cam sensor is part of the distributor, its a $300 item got to get the distributor, (Mitubishi) sebring V6 is prone to distributor problems and distributor electrical issues due to location of the distributor. Chrysler was going to have Distributorless ignition on this motor but decided against it because Mitsubishi wanted too much more money for it.

1. I would like to second the motion for the "goop" solution to the back window of the the top.....I did mine in stages working from the sides toward the middle....the top has been up and won a number of times and in some pretty good rain storms...working well...
2. last spring I had a problem with the top going up....I was told the right cylinder was bad and it was replaced....now..often the top goes up half way ..then stops...I put it down and try again and it slowly closes...someone said that it may be that the fluid has air bubbles.....anyone have experience with this??????

I have a 2006 Seabring convertible with a tan top. When the car was about 2 1/2 years old the edging (trim) around the top started to deteriorate-threads broke-trim fell loose. I took the car to the dealer-he said go get a new top ($1800) I called Chrysler-they claimed they had no other reports of problems. I have seen at least 50 Chrysler Convertibles with tan tops with the same problem. What can be done to pressure Chrysler to step up to this problem-they surely know about it but have chosen to ignore it because of the cost.

jim1939, it looks like quite a few people have had problems with tops (not sure if they were all tan) and some of them have had luck repairing them themselves:

#449 of 473 2005 Sebring Convertible 2.7L Question
Jul 21, 2012 (12:12 am)
I've been noticing since I brought my car into the shop a few months ago a section of the engine, what looks to be part of the cooling system, to bubble and drip every now and then. It is concerning and any insight anyone can provide would be appreciated. I've included a picture with a nice "red" oval around the part in question.
Thank you in advance!
