Top Lock (Front Lock) Cylinder

Mercedes part number 2098001172

This is the cylinder that latches the front of the soft top to the windshield. It tends to leak first through the bottom mounting hole, where the mounting pin goes through the housing.

Top Hydraulics makes these parts better than new inside, with seven new, superior seals and reinforcement against the occasional "explosion" known to happen on OEM cylinders' bottoms. There is a lot of precision machining involved, new CNC-machined glands to accommodate the improved rod seals, and Top Hydraulics' signature wiper seal, which keeps dirt and water from entering the gland. Comes with new O-rings to put on the hoses when you install the cylinders, and an illustration on how exactly to install the O-rings.

You send in your cylinder for rebuild first (then we rebuild it, then we ship it back to you), or you pick the up-front shipping option (aka core exchange) which adds $30 surcharge plus $120 refundable deposit. Core exchange means we send the parts first from our inventory, then you send back your cores (original cylinders) to recover the core deposit. The deposit gets refunded in full to the original payment method once we receive a matching core without serious damage to the metal parts.

Hydraulic line hook-up: number 65 on the shaft side and number 66 on the bottom.


For Rebuilding Your Cylinders:  Send your cylinders to Top Hydraulics first and we will rebuild and upgrade them to better-than-new condition. 

Seals used by Top Hydraulics, Inc. include Viton™ and Teflon™-hybrid seals, as well as enhanced Polyurethane material, which far exceed the OEM's requirements for rigidity, but provide at least double the service life for your convertible car top actuators, based on scientific test data.

The Roll Bar Lift cylinder is part of the roll bar assembly. It is related to hydraulic lowering and raising of the rollbar. Emergency deployment is independent via electronic release of spring pressure in the roll bar. Top Hydraulics upgrades the seals inside the hydraulic cylinders - this is independent of emergency deployment.
