Dave.....the pins are located at the top of the roof rams on convertables, they connect the ram to the roof structure, providing the fulcrum. They are not actually a part of the hydro' ram, but more of the actual roof framework, anyway!!! I cant' get them out in order to remove and replace my rams, because of a type of keeper/retainer thing on the end of em'.oh well the pony's stabled now,,,winters here.....drive safe...Larry69(mm)

Nobody has a answer for Larry? I feel really bad for him.

Larry, could you take a pic of the retainer you want to remove? If I saw it, I could help you better.
