Inside the front most part of the trunk is the top motor. Remove the blocking panel from inside the trunk to gain access. On the right side of the motor is a rubber plug that can be removed to check fluid level and to add fluid. Note that you can pickup the cylinder and turn it on it's side to fill it.

Be aware that if you have lost a substantial amount of fluid, the fluid level may simply be a symptom - and not the cause. Check for leaks by removing the back seat base and see if the floors are dry on the left or right side. If a hydraulic ram is leaking, it will leak fluid onto the floor at the sides of the seat area.

Where do you fill 02 Mustang convert top hydraulic fluid


First be sure that one of your hoses to the cylinders aren't broken or disconnected, then follow the hoses usually they are right behind the rear seat or under it and possibly in the trunk your owners manual should say more about it if you don't have one your Ford dealer will have a service manual or you can go to your local library and copy pages from the repair manuls they have!

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.

Convertible top won't go back up, can you help?


IT is probably a fuse. Does it work at all? my mustang had a busted cylinder and only 1 side would go up. If it doesnt work at all then check your fuses. With no manual you will have to use a flashlight and shine on them and see if one is blown. IF they all look good then I would go buy a testlight for about $10 and manually check the fuses for power. It oculd be the motor, however that will cost you several hundred dollars and that is if you install it yourself.

Convertable top will go down but will not come back up.


I had the same problem with my 95 GT. You may have a leak in your system (motor, lines, cylinders). It seems there just isnt enough fluid to push the top up. I think Ford used the same system for 01 also. I had to replace the hydraulic cylinder that pushes the top up. My fluid leaked out because one of the cylinders was bad. This may be the problem. Located the motor and look for leaks.
