Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero convertible and it just started leaking what we think is
hydraulic fluid from the front inside of the top.  Why would this be happening?  What
needs to be done to fix it?

It's probably one of your bow cylinder for the top that is leaking. A common issue. Depending on where you live you can maybe find a shop that will rebuild/repair it for you, in the $150 range or you can replace with new, $500.
