Necessary to make the Targa top fit properly. Difficult to push on unless you add a bit of lubricant to the pin! I found that by placing a properly sized deep sock over the pin it could be tapped on with a small hammer. That worked well.

I had trouble getting them past half way, even with a little heat and then soap, frustrated i put them on one at a time, then put them actually in the hole they go in, whilst half way on the pin still, then one quick ram home as you would if you were putting the roof back on, and they went all the way on, PERFECT!! let the hole bang them home ;

Kinda a pain to get installed
After determining that hitting the covers with a rubber mallet would only force them on 3/4 way, I found it easier to heat the covers up in boiling water and then just took a pair of pliers to rotate/push it on. Worked great afterwards, however my top did need a bit of help since it helped to solid up the targa fit.

Targa pin cover
Got it on but neiyher soap or vaseline helped. Finally put it in microwave for 15 seconds, went on easily.

Stop targa rattles
These stop a common source of rattles on targa tops. Getting the old broken covers off are a challenge and you need a little dish soap to make these slide on, but they fit well once installed.
