Hi,

You first have to remove the lower REAR seat cushion and seat back. Push IN lower seat cushion TOWARDS REAR of car and lift upward to remove. Located near lower center of back seat panel will be the convertible top mop motor and reservoir ( hydraulic fluid is used - trans fluid ). Black rubber plug is removed to fill reservoir. Necessary to fill, bleed (operate top), and refill. Almost all power convertible tops are electric over hydraulic. The electric 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 trunk. 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 buster with a piece of vacuum line makes a good filler tool.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Sorry your Audi TT does not have a reservoir for the convertible top. The top is controlled by hydraulics. If the top does not work you will need to take it in for service.

What would cause loud idling sound , jerking motion and unresponsive brakes to a 2001 audi tt (manual transmission) after adding brake fluid?


loud idling may be higher rpm's and unresponsive brakes point to a vacuum leak in the power booster hose that will run very clos to the reservoir.

My clutch pedal goes to the floor and will not pop back up. And I can't find the reservoir to check the fluid



  • The clutch sticking is going to be a slave cylinder or the clutch master cylinder.
  • The clutch master cylinder will be clear in the back under the hood by the firewall. It looks just like the brake master cylinder and is not far from it either.
  • After you add fluid and fix the problem make sure to bleed the clutch lines just like you would brakes. The bleeder valve is located by the slave cylinder. (see picture)

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.

Audi tt 2003 1.8T Brake warning light beeps and comes on when I go around a corner. Clutch pedal occasionally goes to floor when cold and does not want to return. Both these problems have happened at the...


hi, i'm pretty sure that you do have a combo brake/clutch system on the same reservoir. sounds like the brake fluid is low, when you take turns and the brake light goes on, that usually means low fluid sloshing away from internal reservoir sensor. audi and vw take DOT 4 brake fluid only, not DOT 3. You should fill to max level on the brake reservoir(located in front of the drivers seat/steering wheel in the engine compartment) and yes, take it to a professional shop, there maybe other problems in the brake/clutch system in need of inspection. hope i could help.

Is there a hydraulic reservoir that needs topping


Hello there:
Yes there is a hydraulic pump that has fluid in it.
depending on the unit you should be able to have the resivor topped off i would refer to the owners manual maintenance section for clarification it may be simply the hoses them selves are not tight or the seals are not tight and may be getting air in them ok
Best regards Michael

Had a similar problem audi come into my shop.  No headlights, blower motor would not work, wipers would not work.  After dinking around found ignition switch wires had burn't up.  Remove top steering column by taking out two very small philips screws from under column.  Look at top LH side of column w/ top cover removed.  Probably will find wires burnt up.
