The Nissan Figaro’s iconic folding roof is covered in a hard wearing, foldable and weather resistant ivory coloured vinyl trimming. This trimming is bonded to the structural front and rear roof bows that form the structure of the roof mechanism. The single skin steel rear roof bow offers the physical connection between the roof and the rear window frame whereas the complicated double skin steel front roof bow connects the folding roof mechanism mechanism, roof latches, vinyl covering as well as the inner roof liner together.
The Nissan Figaro, due to its age, has suffered from rust and corrosion to a couple of common places but the corners of the front and rear roof bow are a common failure point. Water, salt and grime attack the 30+ year old steel causing the roof bow to weaken and break away from the folding mechanism on the corners on the front and the tensioner points on the rear; this is usually visible with the roof open or when undertaking a roof cover change. Their complex shape is extremely difficult to replicate and most repairs to them are usually temporary and involve patching in steel where possible to extend their life but to do their location, this repair seldom lasts.
Here at The Figaro Shop, we are always developing parts to ensure the longevity of the Nissan Figaro and we are now able to offer a complete front and rear roof bow replacement panels that have been custom made using original sections to create the moulds and dies to ensure a perfect fit. The repair panels are a direct replacement and offer a simple, long lasting solution to the corroded original roof bows. We are now able to offer both roof bows from stock to be purchased together as a package offering convenience and a cost saving.
