Thanks GTiJohn. However, this video explains how to get the whole roof off rather than just the rear window. I believe this is meant to unzip but I haven't been able to see how.

The original roof had a removable rear window. If your roof has been replaced by a previous owner, they may have installed a softtop with an integrated window which does not come out. :sad

No, I have owned the car from new, so I imagine I can get it out.

If you look in the Cabriolet specific section, there's a thread headed Hood Refitting.

I've posted on the thread how to remove the rear window section.

Pull the window down from the inside at the top ,, there should Velcro at the top and sides of the window , the zip should be at the top under the Velcro, then undo screw on the bottom rail under rubber seal . if no zip it's a one piece hood and replace the back window the hood will need taking of the frame .
