mustang Convertible issue - need help

(1/1)

anoopspala12:
My ford mustang convertible top is not working both ways. I have taken it to service and they advised me to buy the part - XR3Z7650600AA LIFT ASY.
I could not find this part anywhere as it says "THIS ITEM IS OBSOLETE THRU FORD.
IT IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE."
Please help me to buy this item. I'm living in Miami

Topless_Horse:
Did a Google search for Ford XR3Z7650600AA and found two places that appear to carry it:

http://www.royaloakfordparts.com/OEMParts/ford-123/X/XR3Z7650600AA.html

There's also a thread at a Mustang Monthly forum that gives a source in Florida for them:

Thank you very much for the reply. I have contacted Ford shops in the first 2 links and of no use as this part is no longer available in Ford. I followed the last link given by you and found the part. Could you please help me to verify if the part i'm looking at is the same as of the below one. I'm looking for Ford part no - XR3Z7650600AA

this is what i found online :
1998-2004 Ford Mustang convertible lift cylinder #HYDLC129

I will wait for your reply to order this online.

Appreciate your help.
Thanks

I really can't help you with the compatibility question.

I'd suggest calling the vendor (they have an 800 number) and ask them whether their part is compatible and ask them if you can return the part for a full refund if it turns out that it's not an equivalent part.

Sorry.
