How to use Roof Tool/Pictures

ALL SSR's came with a Roof Tool!!

Not sure were they went or why anyone would want one but lot's of owners do not have a roof tool in their SSR.

1. Roof Tool is to latch/unlatch roof at header.

If you lose power or roof can not be closed, you can manually close roof and Roof Tool is used to Latch the roof.

2. No power and the roof is down, use Roof Tool to manually PULL release cables behind EACH seat.

One cable to Release, One cable to Lock Roof Cover. Cover open, can manually close roof.
See your Owners Manual.

3. Last, Roof Tool is used to release bed cover manually.

I will NOT post this procedure, PM me if you would like more information.

Picture
1. Using a dime, turn screw type cap located center of windshield header.
2. 1/2 turn and remove.
3. Locate female end of latch assembly. Matches Roof Tooling.
4. Insert tool into latch assembly. Has spring to hold drive. Push tool into assembly, DO NOT pound on the tool. You will break spring!
5. Latch or unlatch Roof Assembly.

I have Roof Tools available, if you want or need one.

This tool should be in your SSR.

Cost is $70.00 plus $5.00 to mail

(OEM tool was $69.00 but is no longer available).



1. Two Cables behind each seat, One to release roof cover and One to Lock roof cover. Roof Tool has grove to hold cable in place while releasing.
See your Owner Manual for instructions. One GREEN Cable - One RED Cable.
2. Roof Tool, not the OEM Tool. We have produced roof tools for those who lost can't find or did not come with their SSR.
3. Better picture of how roof tool is used to latch roof.

I have owned two SSRs and neither came with the roof tool. However, when I sold them the roof tool always went with the truck. I remember looking at a brand new SSR in 04 and the sales man had no idea what it was.

Thank you for all you do for the Fanatics Dick.

Roof Tool Use Caution.
The roof tool can be difficult to insert into place.
Do Not Hit the roof tool - gently tap the tool to insert it.
If you hit the roof tool too hard you will break the plactic tabs that hold the metal clip. The metal clip holds the drive gear and spring in place. The roof actuator will not work if the plastic tabs are broken.

birdmans - I suggest you "Edit" your question - delete it. This should not become public knowledge.
The replacement roof tool does all the functions of the original tool.

Yes, do not hit tool to engage roof latch.

1. Retainer clip is only plastic and can break easily. Once broken, shaft will not drop into position to latch/unlatch roof.

Just clarifying. Insert the tool into the female fitting and "push" to release roof latches? Or push and twist?

Hi Dick I have an option buying a 2006 SSR it has had the engine and transmission pulled out of it and has been left outside for three years with the windows down.
I want to open the back to see if there is any of the trans mounts or radiator back there.
I am interested to know what engine in can put in this vehicle to get it on the road.
The truck has very little miles on it but there is no exhaust no trans mount cross member, no trans cooler, radiator or fans. All the plugs under the hood look ok. The cabin area will have to be completely stripped out and all the electrics will need checking and possibly replacing. I am hoping to get it for 1000 dollars. I have never worked on one of these vehicles. What do you think?
