    Hi folks
    I am looking for the two ball headed pins that hold the
    Cover in place behind the roll bars.
    I am after the long ones that are fitted when a wind deflector is used.
    Pins & spacers
    Many thanks
    Mick

    I went via BMW route they wanted lots of money
    I found them at Silverstone last year, whilst wondering around found them at a soft top stall BAS they were 50p each, I was go smacked
    I think the stealers wanted about £20+
    The silly thing is I find it easier not to clip the tonneau to the back of the tool hoops just use the front clips never bad a problem, I think a lot of use thie method

    I read title 'tonneau' I didn't read your thread sorry

    I need a set of these too! The ones in situ work fine for securing the wind deflector or the tonneau, but not both!!

    Has anyone bought these from the German eBay seller and did they turn out OK? Does anyone have a UK source for these clips?

    I found the long ones put marks in the rear window as it lowered, I do without them now and the cover stays on fine just using the front clips.
    Regards
