I took my bobcat post hole auger apart to service it and had to drain the hydraulic fluid! Now do I have to fill the auger head before connecting it to the machine? Or can the machine do it self?

if the hydraulic oil is from the auger head then the machine will fill and bleed out the air
the hydraulic oil would have been in the hydraulic motor that drives the auger

What kind of hydraulic fluid does my pump for the top need in my convertible 2001 saab 93 2.0l turbo just want to know that thanks

This information will be available from a dealer service centre but in the absence of information from them any hydraulic oil should be ok to use . Try to get the correct oil first but oil used in the power steering would be ok as it is a high pressure ,high temperature oil. If it is too thin then there are specific hydraulic oils that could be used. and obtainable from any oil distribution centre.

I need hydraulic fluid for my 2008 Mitsubishi Spyder convertible top.

I would not feel insecure using hydraulic oil for rams and jacks as those items need to be reliable, scoot down to your auto parts store and grab a bottle, remember to fill with rams compressed. hope this helps.

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

1996 audi cabriolet 2.8 V6 convertible top motor needs fluid how do i add the fluid to the convertible top motor?! and what type of fluid does it need?

Almost all power convertible tops are electric over hydraulic. The ecectric motor runs a hydraulic pump. The pump pushes fluid to the cylinders that work the top. Most are located behind the rear seat backrest. Either remove the rear backrest or access the motor/pump from the trunl. It will be shaped like a cylinder. At one is the electric motor, at the other end is the hydraulic reservoir. At the end of the reservoir is a rubber plug. With the top down, remove the plug and fill it with tran fluid till it over flows. replace the plug and cycle the top up and down as far as it will go. Repeat the process till it will take no more fluid. A turkey baster with a piece of vacuum line makes a good filler tool. With that said, you must find the leak. You may have a leaking pump, hydraulic line or cylinder. RNever replace one line. Do them all. Always replace cylinders in pairs.

Good luck, Karl at

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.
