how do i check fluid for convertible top motor
the electric top on my 1998 BMW Z3 has stopped working. Is there fluid to check somewhere--please advise what I might look for--fuses are ok--motor and relays in trunk seem to be trying to work--heard it may be low on fluid
What seems to be the problem??? To check the oil you need to take the pump out and the reservoir is built in. It is rare to have to top up this system let me know the exact symptom to help
top will not work electrically--had a fluid leak as car was sitting about 3 months--winshield washer stopped working too--thought it might be fuise as they looked the same--might be electrical---woe is me---now something leaking that looks like coolant---had advertised car for sale---now want to get it fixed---unfortunately--rural area---no BMW dealer for 80+ miles--suggestions would be appreciated
This car has diagnostics for the top would be great to read the codes, the oil is red like coolant or ATF so check if it matches, if the trunk cover or trunk lid has problems or incorrectly closed the top won't work. Check that the top rest is down on the trunk. Check if the top motor actuates
