Mercedes Convertible Hydraulic Cylinders

 

W208 CLK-Class | Years: 1998-2003

This cylinder latches the Rear Bow Lock. It typically fails or leaks at the same time as the Case Cover Lock Actuator/Cylinder. Top Hydraulics recommends to upgrade at least these two cylinders at the same time.

Not sure whether you have a W208 or a W209?
The W208, model years '98-'03, has four separate, round headlights, and the front of the soft top needs to be latched by hand.

For Rebuilding Your Cylinders:  We gladly accept the cylinders in their locks / latches at no extra charge -- you save the extra labor and we have all the assurance that the cylinders do not accidentally get scratched upon removal from the locks.

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.
