Default Dream Cruiser 2005 Convertible Hydraulics

Where can I find how to access and service the hydraulic motor, lines and pumps for the convertible top on my Dream Cruiser 2005? Time to finally repair a leak and refill the hydraulic fluid.

Thanks,

HL

With the top up climb into the back seat. Behind the seats remove the 2 Velcro connections where the top secures to the carpet. Pull the carpet up, it's easy just start somewhere and work your way around. It is not glued down. Then remove the yellow piece of foam and the pump is right there. I tried refilling mine with ATF and it worked for a few weeks and failed again. May try filling it with something that has some stop leak in it.

Cool Re: Dream Cruiser 2005 Convertible Hydraulics

Should be plenty of "How To" videos on YouTube.
That's how I get all my repair manual info!
