2007 GT. Where do I check the hydraulic fluid?


Folding Top Fluid Addition
Caution: Refer to Eye Protection Caution in the Preface section.
Important:
?€¢
When servicing the hydraulic system do not allow the fluid level to drop below the minimum indicator line on the reservoir.


?€¢
Inspect the hydraulic fluid level with the vehicle parked on a level surface, the folding top in the closed position, and the stowage compartment lid open.


?€¢
When new, the power folding top hydraulic fluid is golden clear. As the system is cycled, it picks up the carbon black from the numerous O-ring seals used in the system. The carbon black acts like a dye and causes the fluid to darken considerably and take on a black appearance. This is a normal occurrence and no repair attempts should be performed, as replacement fluid will also darken.

Place a protective covering over the interior and the adjacent body panels. Locate the hydraulic pump in the folding top storage compartment area on the right side. Remove the rear quarter trim panel. Refer to Rear Compartment Side Trim Replacement - Right Side . Place a shop towel around the pump motor to control any hydraulic fluid spillage.
Important: Wait 5 minutes before separating the hydraulic cylinder lines at any connectors.
Remove the reservoir filler plug. Add fluid GM P/N 88901975 or (Canadian P/N 88901976) ONLY, add the fluid until the level is at the middle of the indicator line on the reservoir.
Notice: Refer to Fastener Notice in the Preface section.
Install the reservoir filler plug.
Folding Top Deck Lid Access
In the event that the rear compartment lid is inhibited from conventionally opening due to a folding top symptom, displaying a TOP NOT SECURE message or that the folding top operation can not complete the opening or closing sequence as it is inhibited by the rear compartment latch being ajar, displaying a TOP INOP-TRUNK message, follow the steps below to determine the specific Tech 2 Special Function to gain access.
Important: Allow the system a minimum of three minutes to bleed down pressure after the last cycle.

  1. Ignition On, engine OFF.
  2. Press and hold the folding top control switch. Verify the TOP INOP-TRUNK message does not appear in the driver information center (DIC).
  3. ?‡'
    If the specified message is displayed, perform the TOP INOP-TRUNK Access procedure.

  4. Press and hold the folding top control switch. Verify the TOP NOT SECURED message does not appear in the DIC.
?‡'
If the specified message is displayed, perform the TOP NOT SECURED Access procedure

2003 sl500 the right side line is leaking hydronic fluid and the top won't open


your problem is the fluid is low and doesn't have enough fluid in the pump to operate. you can add fluid at the rear underneath your spare tire. the fluid is a special blend only at mercedes benz dealer. anything else will cause the top cylinders to fail and it is very costly to repair. the fluid is about $20. It leaks because you have a leaking seal in the top cylinder. Mercedes knew this would happen this is why it leaks right in front of your face hard to ignore that huh.

Replaced thermostat heat good for a few days and now nothing


Thermostats can often be defective--especially cheap ones--1st --remove cap--check fluid level---2nd--if level near top -is ok--then run engine about 5-7 min. with cap off--rev engine once every minute (this removes air in system)--IF this doesn't help--return thermostat & get a higher quality one & repeat above procedure. Also, you should have radiator & heater core flushed if car is over 5 yrs. old--sometimes they can have blockage--(if it hasn't been done --fluid should be changed after 5 yrs. age also 50-50 mixture or premixed antifreeze--never use water unless only for short time--example: checking for leaks.

Hard to steer when standing still.


Check up the steering system fluid and top up if necessary. Inspect the steering hydraulic system for leaks also. If you will find oil leaks repair & replace damaged pieces.
