I have a Cadillac 2004 XLR and the top is leaking hydraulic

Customer Question

I have a Cadillac 2004 XLR and the top is leaking hydraulic fluid when raised or lowered. I have it in the dealership now and they are telling me they can't find an 'actuator' for a 2004. Aren't the roof parts interchangeable in all year XLRs and why can't the part from any XLR work?

Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site..

Let me just say that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

They are somewhat interchangeable on the XLR's, from 2004 to 2009. They may not be able to get them from the factory anymore though for the 2004, (over 10 years old) and there are some after market suppliers that show to have them.

Here is a link to one of them.
