Thanks man... when i half opened the top to see where the harness goes, it seems like it goes right inside the metal frame of the top itself... and i cant find/see the ends of the harness or where to unclip them from after they "disappear" into the soft top frame... do i cut off old connectors and pull out harness (with string)?

need to have a go at this and document everything.

I'm sure changing the harness won't be a cake-walk but the key is to tie strings to the old connectors when you pull them out so that you can use the same strings to pull the new ones into place.
