Where is the hydraulic fluid reservoir for the SSR? Talkin bout the fluid for the top controls....? Why is the fluid so difficult to find?
Hey Ed,cruzned said:Seems weird that it would just disappear. There is no evidence of any kind of leak either....more later...Ed
I noticed a new sound last week as my top was raising and lowering, just a diffferent pitch halfway through the cycle. Today, the top won't go down or up , as I had it partailly open, I looked in the roof storage box and found a nice little puddle of hydraulic fluid. Anyone else had a leak ?freezer said:The hydraulics should be one of the items without issues. All the hydraulics come to the Craft Centre filled and tested. The Craft Centre does not make any hydraulic connections or add any fluid. Power Packer in Wisconsin makes this unit. The Craft Centre just hooks up the cylinders and routes the hydraulic hoses. The fluid reservoir sits on top of the pump and should not need service. If your fluid is low you probably have a leak. Almost everything is in the open so leaks should be visible with one exception. There are cylinders inside the quarter panels to lock the tonneau. These can leak and the fluid leaks outside to the ground without being visible. There is not much total fluid in the system so you might not notice these leaks. Ed should monitor his fluid level and if it goes down, then the tonneau lock cylinders need to be checked. Probably one of the lines is not fully seated and has a leak. These lines are very tough and do not typically get holes worn in them. The pump itself and its internal check valves can go bad. Having these issues can cause roof timeout signals because the roof does not move to the correct position.
The switch on the header latch is also a prime cause of roof timeout signals.
