I purchased the complete kit with core exchange from TopHydraulics. Had a local technician install the parts. Total cost, after core exchange, was approx. $1100.00. Top works great. Very happy!

Everyones got great ideas on how they fixed theres, and the comments are appreciated, but still nobody has said what they used for fluid to refill the pump? I see someone else asked that question and didnt get an answer. Does anyone have that answer please, so I can at least figure out if i have a leak or the pump is shot. Thanks, Vince

I researched a long while on the internet before deciding that the hydraulics were made by Mercedes-Benz for Chrysler, and the recommended fluid was Febi 02615.

I bought mine here: amazon.com/Febi 02615



You don't have to drill any holes in the reservoir as I've seen some said they did. There is a fill port on the top of the pump.



It's just not very easy to get the fluid in.
I used a very small tipped pipette and it has to be squirted in the direction of the arrow towards the reservoir.

Default Convertible fluid

Saw your post on the fluid. Thanks. Everything else I was aware of, just needed to know what to put in. Will track some down. Thanks again!

Thanks for the info. Found some on ebay.ca, as Amazon.ca does have it. Have dental curved syringes to fill it.
Thanks again, and will post the outcome.
