The black handle of this Mercury Capri Convertible top latch tend to break typically because the hook is over tightened causing the owner to apply too much strain either pushing or pulling to close or open the latch. The hook should be adjusted, so that it clamps realatively easily while still keeping the front of the frame snug with the winshield & water tight, but not so tight that you have to force it in order to snap the handlle closed or pull it open. To replace a Mercury Capri Convertible top latch, simply remove the wide Black Rubber-like cover/moulding that runs across the the top of the windshield on the inside of the soft top using a flat head screw driver or small pry bar. Following, you'll see a large Phillips Head screw that holds the roof latch in place on the side of the frame, so you'll need to remove it. Next open the latch, and you'll see two small Phillips Head screws that come up underneith the latch. These screws are often rusted or corroded in place. Therefore we recommend spreaying the with a "W-D" type oil and letting the soak for a while. After removing these two screws the latch will basically fall/drop out from the bottom of the convertible top frame. Finally, you'll now need to reinstalll the wide Black Rubber-like cover/panel that runs across the the top of the windshield on the inside of the soft top. To do this, simply like up the plastic rivets in the moulding and gently pop each back into place with the heal of your hand or a soft rubber mallet.
