14 an 15 in this pic, I think

Maybe needs that center clamp more than we think
Yes that is the part that broke -- and yes it's weird --I haven't heard of anyone else that has had the same problem. I at one point tried to order a center clamp assembly and put it on my 2005 but no one had one in stock at the time. I replaced the part that broke and haven't had any trouble with my hardtop. I think if that part broke with the factory hardtop it probably wouldn't result in the top flying off either - at least if it broke where mine did -- which was the bottom half of the part broke off.
