Question about 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible

Lowering convertible top

We rented a 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible and don't know how to lower and raist the convertible top. We found a button on the left hand side of the drivers console, but it just makes a noise like maybe the top needs to be unlocked some way first? No owners manual of course in the rental.

You are both wrong!! On a 2008 first you have to open the trunk and make sure the top cradle is pulled out and on the latches. Then you just push the picture of the open convertible button and let go. Wait about two minutes and it will be opened up. To close it you have to hold the button the entire time until it is closed. There are no latches to unhook on a 2008. If you continue holding the button to close the top all the windows will roll up also.

You have to pull down the visors and release the top handles to free the top. Hit the button enough to raise the top slightly and put the handles back in the closed position. Then you can put the top all the way down. There is a built in safety feature, where the window go down slightly as the top starts to open.

There should be latches you have to pull first to unlock the top from the windshield. Pull down the sun visors, the handles should be under them. Then push the power top switch.

    No latches on a 2008. Make sure the trunk has the cover in place. just push and hold the button tell it starts. But the trunk cover most be in the right place look under the rpm gauge on the dash it should say wants wrong.

2008 chrysler seabring convertible top is stuck

The top is operated by a electrically driven hydraulic pump, so more then likely you have a loss of fluid due to a leaking hose or cylinder and this lowers the system pressure and causes the top to stop functioning.

I rented a 2009 sebring convertible but it has no owners amnual. How do I put the soft top down?

There should be a button on both the dash and your key fob that you can push to automatically put the top down. Make sure the 'top holder' is open and ready in the trunk before you push the button.

Sebring convertible top won't work

You are probably low on hydraulic (ATF) fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. Replace any leaking lines or cylinders. Always replace them in pairs.
When the leak is fixed...
Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times.
Repeat till the reservoir will accept no more fluid.
You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.
