Soft Top Cover Hinges was created by SL450UK
Hallo,

Are both of the soft top cover hinges spring loaded?

I have removed my soft top cover (horseshoe) for restoration and noticed that one hinge is spring loaded ( stays upright) but the other isn't. Is this correct?

Many thanks,
Andy

Thank you for the reply.
It is now obvious that one of my hinge torsion bars has broken.
Cheers,

Sorry ignore that, only one is spring loaded as can be seen from the picture.

One spring for the top cover. One spring for the trunk lid.
