My 2007 mustang convertable top sometimes doesn't work, push the swith to raise and it makes a little click noise by the cylinders but won't rais.


This is similar to a solution I offered another member earlier. If the pump runs at all, but the top won't move, then you most likely have lost some of all of the hydraulic fluid. The most likely source of the leak is one or both bad lift cylinders. If this has happened, the pump is probably screwed now, too. Your best bet is to plan on replacing the pump, both lift cylinders, and all the lines. If you try to save a few bucks by swapping out just the cylinders (for example), you will probably be back under the seat to replace the rest of the system in short order. From my own (unpleasant) experience, plan on doing it right the first time, and you won't have to do it twice.

My 1993 Ford Mustang convertible won't go up.But the motor is coming on.Also it will go down thou


There must be a hydraulic fluid leak somewhere. Check to see if there is oil filler cap on your hydraulic pump located in the trunk compartment. Fill if necessary with just enough fluid to raise the top. The reason it won't go up is cause it is lacking pressure from the low fluid

Top worked fine yesterday but today tried to let down only clicked


It is a hydraulic pump that applies pressure to the 2 hydraulic pistons to raise & lower the top. So, check for something obstructing movement first.

The convertible top:
  • is motor-driven.
  • requires parking brake engaged to complete circuit for operation.
  • is equipped with a back window glass (42006) . The back window glass is permanently attached to the folding top back window curtain (52500) and cannot be opened.

How do i put the top down on a 1994 mustang convertable


Relase the 2 latches aove the windshield, lower the windows and then operate the switch to lower the top. the top has an electric motor that operates a pump that sends hydraulic fluid under pressure to a piston on each arm behind the rear seat. That raises or lowers the top.

Where is the top motor on the convertible? mustang 2001


My 2001 mustang had the same problem. The fluid is low in the pump. The pump is located behind the rear seatback. Easy to get to. Google removal if you cant figure it out. Once you get to the pump, there is a rubber plug in the end of the pump. Remove the pump from its rubber mounts and stand it on end. remove the plug and fill it with Mercon transmission fluid. Replace the plug and the pump and then run the top several times to get the air out and your done. There is probobly some slight seepage on one of the pistons that raise and lower the top, but I didnt see any leaks on mine and will deal with that later if the problem comes back. Good Luck

1994 Mustang GT Auto gearbox fault


It is caused by the torque converter chattering. If the fluid has been changed and you have tried the additive the torque converter will eventually have to be replaced.

2001 Mustang GT convertible won't go up


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.
