Soft Top and Door

Hi I have two problems with my w reg soft top and any advice would be gratefully received.

1 The drivers door check strap has snapped i see it bolts to the body but does it bolt to the inside of the door or i is it welded i would take the door card of an have a look but its too cold and and i want to ge the parts ready to do it when it warms up if its possible.

2 when closed the roof rattles and creaks i know its not going to be totaly silent as its a soft top but it sounds like something is loose near the front.

As i havent had the car long i am sure i will be back for further advice very shortly.

Managed to change the check strap but this rattle comes from the locking area of the soft top can any one point me in the right direction as to how to stop this.

As i have read other posts about turning the power off when opening the roof and the problems it causes i am not sure wether i can just open the front off the roof and not open it any further without the ignition on and work on it or will that cause a problem.

Last problem the interior light broken as they all are .i can solder a new piece of metal on to make a new conector for the bulb but what does the conector that is fastened to the lens do and where does it conect has anyone a picture they could post to show what it should look like.

Hope someone can post me a reply on these

Thanks Chris
