Our 2004 9-3 convertible has a hydraulic leak coming from the overhead convertible latch.

Asked by Jun 21, 2015 at 11:36 AM about the 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We first thought the leak was rainwater from some strong storms we had been having; but we soon realized it was hydraulic fluid coming from just over the passenger side latch. Then we had trouble operating the top.   A mechanic said we'd need to replace both sides of the entire hydraulic line system from the motor in the trunk - nearly $1600.   Any thoughts?

Yes,replace the line,s or it can be patched,but the mechanic is right,usually if you pacth or just replace one side ,it will make the other side blow out,
