5th bow replacement DIY

Has anyone here done the 5th bow replacement on their own. Any special tools needed. It seems like a straight forward part replacement
Im considering doing it myself but figured id ask if anyone here has and if they had any tips.
Thanks

If I recall correctly, there is a board member who replaced his own, but the work was very hard to do, as you have to remove the entire top, down to the frame. Search 5th bow and it should be there somewhere.

By the way Angie it is covered under warranty. I did not trust my dealer to do it so I did it. I am glad I did as it needs a lot of attention to do it right. The dealer just gave me the part and I returned the bent one back to them.

Started this tonight. It looks like it can be fixed without removing top. If so I will post pictures and directions.
