Question about 2001 Volkswagen Cabrio
Sounds like the fluid level to me ,it could have a small leak and might just need some oil
Posted on Sep 11, 2010
Testimonial: "Makes sense, but I don't know where to measure the fluid and what to fill it with."
Your top is moved by hydrauluc fluid moved by a pump/motor combination behind the rear seat backrest. The sound indicates that the motor is working, so I would assume low fluid. One end of the pump/motor is a reservoir for fluid. With the top down remove the plug and fill the reservoir with transmission fluid till it runs out. This is best done with a turkey baster with a clear hose on the end. Cycle the pump and fill it again. Continue doing this till the top works. The question now is :Where did your fluid go"? you have a leak somewhere. Check the hoses, cylinders and pump for leaking fluid and replace what you must to stop it. Always replace cylinders in pairs.
