BMW E36 CONVERTIBLE TOP TENSION STRAPS

Fits the 1994-1999 318i, 320i, 323i, 325i, 328i and M3 Convertible

MADE WITH SUPERIOR GERMAN ELASTIC JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL

This item is for one pair of black replacement tension straps that fit all models of the 1994-1999 BMW 3 series convertible. Your original tension straps will lose their elasticity over time and the front or rear loops may break. Failure may cause damage to your convertible top and void your warranty. Therefore, we recommend replacement when you change your BMW convertible top.



In the example drawing above you can see where these straps are installed. In this rendering the strap labeled "A" on the left has lost all of its elasticity and is no longer working as designed. This is typical over time and it should be replaced. The more you open and close the top, the faster these will wear.

Series 3 Tension Straps May 16, 2016
Reviewer: Norman Balzer from Dunoon, NSW Australia  
I fitted these just by dropping the headlining and not removing the top.
Full electric roof- very difficult job only made possible the excellent Auto Tops Direct straps.
The straps fitted perfectly and the roof folds like a dream. The most important part for the functioning of the roof.
Will use a Auto Top headlining when I replace that.
Thanks norm

BMW 3 SERIES 1994-1999 TENSION STRAP, PAIR May 16, 2016
Reviewer: Michelle from Phoenix, AZ United States  
I was pleasantly surprised to see the shipment within a couple of days after purchase.  In addition, my mechanic was skpetical about anything less than the dealer straps.  After installing the straps, he now refers all customers and business relations needing convertible straps to Auto Tops Direct!
