Roof String Tensioner

Hi, What is the purpose of these strings, I assume its to create some tension.
On one side mine is hanging down, seems its broken off its holder, however the roof works perfectly.

Anyone else had this issue.

Roof diagram...

This guy knows his way around the 981/718 roofs, might be worth pinging him...https://www.planet-9.com/threads/boxster-roof-pleat-cord-failure-and-diy-fix.247669/

Hi IborgUK, I did read that read yesterday but he seems to be talking about something else. will try him anyway.

BTW the strings don't show on that Porsche diagram

Yes re diagram , just gives an idea the component layout in the roof.
Be interested to hear how you get on.
I'm guessing that piece has snagged on something during a fail in the roof operation ?
He said - Those strings pull the liner into place when the roof is raised.
The roof works perfectly :)
