Customer Question

Hello: I own a 2008 PT Cruiser convertible. Last night I tried to open the top and it only went half way and stopped. Someone mentioned that maybe I need hydraulic fluid for it?
JA: Just to clarify, which fluid are you talking about? And what color and consistency is it?
Customer: I have no idea. The roof top won't completely open. It was suggested that there is a place to put hydraulic fluid??? I have no idea about cars sorry!!!
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: with the help of my brother yes. Nothing yet. I only discovered that the roof would not fully open around 9:30 last night.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: The motor when I try to open the top sounds tired!

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Yes, the hydraulic fluid in the pump is probably a little bit low, or the pump is failing. Let me see if I can find a procedure for checking and filling the pump for you.
