I am replacing the convertible top in a 98 Chrysler Sebring. Can I replace/refill the hydraulic fluid, and how?
Nothung. I can not find a lube nipple
Hello and welcome to just answer. Yes you can. The pump and reservoir are behind the rear seat. There is a fill plug on the side of the reservoir. Let me see if I can find the procedure for you. Chris
how do I bleed the air from the system?
are you available for live chat?
will hydralauic jack oil work in this sysatem?
I believe you want to put in ATF for this system. Let me check this and I will be right back.
Ok, you need to use Dexron II in this system. Here is the procedure for you. I hope this helps, and let me know if you need further assistance with this.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEMSThe power convertible top hydraulic system consists of; •Two hydraulic cylinders •Hydraulic lines •Electric hydraulic pump and reservoir •Dual relays HYDRAULIC SYSTEM TESTSNOTE: The convertible top will raise slowly or make abnormal noise if the hydraulic fluid level is low. 1.Remove rear seat cushion and back. 2.With the top down, remove the reservoir fill plug. 3.Visually inspect fluid level.
