Hopefully someone with experience answers, but I was in the same boat as you a couple months ago. First that piece came down (you'll see it's actually a clip at the end that is now broken). Then my top stopped going down altogether, after breaking a few more plastic pieces.

There exist hardware kits with all the little plastic pieces (and that harness too), so I have those on the way. I'm expecting to take mine apart and replace them, although I've done some convertible tops before so I think I know what I'm in for. Since you only have one broken piece, you may be in luck - there's a forum member who 3D prints the commonly broken parts.

If you take it to a Fiat studio, they'll probably try to replace the whole top for a few grand, unless they happen to have a tech in who is familiar with doing repairs on the tops (and I understand such individuals are few and far between). But it doesn't hurt to ask.
