Pull in driveway, starting putting the power top up it was closing very slowly then stopped. I do believe it was hydraulic fuel that came out of the back quarter panel.
roof raises and then comes to a stop about a foot from closed position,slows to a stop and wont complete closing cycle. can reverse the switch and roof goes into the open position in trunk and everything works just fine as far as closing in open position.Great until it rains.would like any advice, probably end up at dealership for what I would assume an expensive repair.
Top wont go down or up
Top stopped working while I can't lower it...I hear the motor running, but there is no action.
