Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring
The convertible top of my Sebring 2001 Limited comes down, but won't go up. I hear the motor and it tries to life. Do I just have to rechrge the cylinder with fluid or is it something more?
If it will go down completely,it won't need fluid.And needing 2 people just to put the top back up can be a problem if it's about to rain.Sounds like the pump is weak from use and needs replaced,and it needs all the power when folded.Rather than replace the hydraulic pump,first oil the joints with a light spray lubricant and see if it will work.Those joints may be worn and binding when folded.Kinda like your grandpas knees,he needs help getting up from a crouched position.

Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.

Testimonial: "excellent thanks"
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. If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.
