Jaguar Mechanic: EricFromCT, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Thank you. Can you describe the piece that broke? Do you mean for the convertible top?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes its for the convertible top to latch it manually using the allen wrench
Jaguar Mechanic: EricFromCT, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok thanks. If the allen wrench hole is all stripped out the the header panel has to be removed then the manual latching assembly behind the header panel needs to be replaced. The roof console and visors need to be removed. Let me know if this is something you plan to do yourself or not. I do have access to workshop manual instructions. Thanks.
