Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring
The convertible top starts out strong but seems to bind up after about 5 seconds. I tried to get to the motor and gearbox but can't even get the rear seat to budge.
There is no gearbox. A motor runs a pump which moves the cylinders.
You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.
