Top Hydraulics replaces and upgrades all seals with superior material, making the top cylinders in your convertible better than brand new ones. We upgrade the cheap, tiny rod seals with much larger cup seals for maximum service life and for much better tolerance of imperfections on the cylinder shafts. Awesome package deal!

Note: Most of these cylinders fail almost at the same time.
Note: Some case cover lift cylinders from model year 2003 only cannot be rebuilt - they can only be rebuilt if they look as pictured on our website (p/n 2098001272 with aluminum or black plastic release knob on the bottom). If you choose optional core exchange, you verify that you are return shipping case cover lift cylinders p/n 2098001272 (as opposed to p/n 2098001072, which does not have a release button on the bottom).
The polished shafts on all these cylinders must be undamaged, or there will be an additional charge for shaft replacement (or reduction of core refund in case of core exchange order). Damage on the shaft normally occurs only when the shafts get hit by sharp objects - make sure to retract the shafts on the cylinders before they can be hit by tools. There are some extremely rare cases of rust on the shafts requiring shaft replacement, as well. Top Hydraulics will not rebuild W209 cylinders with severely damaged housings.
