Question about Health & Beauty

1 Answer

The power seat lift stopped working, although it does make noise. I've looked through the owner manual to see if it uses hydraulic fluid and I can't find any details. Any help would be appreciated. DD

    Hi Tim, Sorry about the lack of detail and the lapse in time, I haven't been able to access my laptop. It is a Rascal 600t.mobility scooter. I've replaced the batteries and it runs well. Before that, I was trying to charge it while the seat lift button was depressed. I'm not sure whether this may have caused any problems. Thanks. Dennis

Brake pedal hard with engine running, same as engine off


Check fluid levels in your power steering/brake reservoirs and look for hydraulic fluid leaks in the power steering and brake lines. Could be a bad power steering pump too. Your owners manual should show positions of hydraulic reservoirs.

What oil should i put in Fiat 411r hydraulics?


I read someplace the hydraulics use the engine oil. I have the same question. It looks like the hydraulic pump is located at the right hand side of the engine block, forward and is connected to it. Although the previous owner of my tractor used hydraulic fluid.

My Sears 3 ton high lift floor jack will raise but it won't lift any weight. The jack is only 3-4 years old and it has not had much use. I can't find my owners manual, and I want to know what I...


Sounds like it needs some hydraulic fluid added.Look for a rubber plug or screw on the side of the hydroelectric cylinder where the ram comes out.Buy a zoom spout oilier and save the oil.Use some solvent and clean it out.Add some hydraulic fluid and fill until it starts to come out.You may be able to find an oil can that will work for you. Leave the jack in the closed position when you fill it.

If this is not the solution that you are looking for please re post because when we pick a question to answer FixYa takes it out of the questions.

Top goes down but not up


the hydraulic pump /resevior is located behind the back seat.lift up front of bottom cusion,pull forward,remove.lift up on seat back,like it's hanging on hooks.remove.locate fill screw or rubber plug on top of resevior.w/ top down fluid should be 1/2'' to3/4''below top of fill hole.it uses automatc trans fluid,so if you see red fluid under the seat you have a leak.

19886 saab 900 convertible roof not working.


Hi David:

First, check the fuses for the hydraulic motor; if they're blown, replace and monitor (why did they blow? Perhaps an overload, or ...) These fuses are located in the engine bay on top of the fender by the front right wheel housing.

Next check the voltage supply to the top switch, possibly a loose connection or broken wire.

Also check relays C (raising top) and D (lowering top) under the rear seat.

Lastly check for voltage at the pump, also under the rear seat, when the switch is actuated, and that the voltage polarity reverses when the switch is actuated the other way (up or down).

After that, it's a hydraulic/mechanical problem. Check the fluid level in the pump reservoir (use SAAB fluid to top up if low) Fluid level should be at the upper marker with top down, and at the lower marker with top up.

Check behind the rear seat side panels that the piston shaft is still properly attached to the roof mechanism bracket at one end, and the piston itself is still firmly attached to the body. Look for any leakage from the system.

If all tests out OK and looks good under the rear seat and behind the side panels, then there is the possibility that the piston seals have failed and the fluid is just circulating around without activating the piston. Pistons are available (http://www.convertibletopguys.com/cgi-local/displaycat.cgi?cat=584 - scroll down) but the entire system should be removed to avoid getting hydraulic fluid on the interior.

However, that fact that you can operate the hood using the bypass valve (manually) would indicate that the hydraulics are likely OK, and that it's probably an electrical or mechanical problem.

Good luck!

2000 BMW Z3 convertible top stopped moving with motor


There are a number of switches that need to be closed in order for the motor to operate. In particular there's a microswitch in the hood just above the left-hand seat which makes sure the motor doesn't operate until the hood has been lifted slightly.

My hood stopped working and I found the cable to the microswitch had been cut by the hood mechanism. Replacing the cable solved the problem.
