My 2008 sebring convertable stops half way down ?

You're most likely low on hydraulic fluid, the top is operated by hydraulic pressure. If the fluid is low you have a leak, very common issue.

Can my 1995 convertable top go up manually

My convertible stopped working, the hydraulic cylinders had blown the seals. I had to disconnect the cylinders from the top. I recommend going ahead and taking the cylinders out so that they don't get in the way and prevent the top from going all the way down or damaging the top itself.

2000 convertable mustang gt my top is not closing and has a problem opening to i opened up the trunk found the hidraulic motor and the rubber cap was off it had no oil it all so i added some and i started...

Yes, I wrote the service bulletins on this. The motor pumps hydraulic oil to the 2 pistons that rasie & lower the top. the frame has pviot points and needs to be free of binding to go up and down. Did you fill the pump and then add more as the pistons arms get full?

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.

1995 Jaguar convertable XJS quarter light windows wont go up

The rear windows are controlled by a timer in the top's ECU. If
the rear windows stop fully closing before your top is closed, the
problem MAY be with top's hydraulic system.

Check your top's hydraulic reserve tank for low fluid level. Lack
of fluid will greatly delay the top's closing sequence, leaving
those rear windows partially open.
Your top's hydraulic pump system is located beneath the right side
of the cubby/storage box behind the front seats. Raise the cover
and you'll see a removable trim panel on the right side. The pump
is behind that access panel.

You can use power steering fluid to top off the tank, but don't
fill it above level indicator line. You may have to add more fluid
after you cycle the top up and down to get the air bubbles out of
the lines.
It could also be a relay. On a 95 the relays that are in the trunk above the battery.
Perhaps, just switching the relays might prove which one is failing..

How do you add oil to the convertable motor?

On a z4 the whole top has to be removed to add oil. The hydraulic pump is connected to the top in the drivers side b-pillar; Usually the convertible top motor will end up being submerged in water because the drains get clogged. I would recommend taking the vehicle to your local bmw dealership

XKR convertable roof not working

The tops on the XKRs work on a hydraulic system, not electric like most american convertibles. Find the source of that leak in the wheel arc and youll probably find why your tops not working.
