    Hi Brett, is your roof hydraulic or electric?? If it's electric, it's drop dead easy to replace!
    Actually the most difficult part of the job is removing the rear passenger trims from the interior...but after that, it's just 6 bolts and 6 electrical connectors and lift the roof from the car... piece of cake. Once the doner roof is on, there maybe a few adjustments needed, as there are large aluminium shims held in place by the bolts you remove, usually 4 each side, and they are for minor adjustments, as no two vehicles are exactly identical....a millimetre here, a millimetre there, hence the shims.
    You will need 2 men to lift it free, though 4 is better for balance. The roof must be in the UP position for removal
    Cheers
