this is an o-ring... 4
were all nutters here! dont worry!
Ah, yes forgotton abt the REAR windows - I need to TEST them sometime!
OK - thks!
I don't mean OK as in "I agree abt the nutter thing!"
dont worry bud!
Thanx, my ECT button is down there as well, I'm beginning to think they all are on Autos as it's close to the shifter. I completely forgot about the rear windows and their switches as well........ See Chan, another nutter :lol
oh no, its official "I am a nutter" :facepalm
I contacted SilverShadow, unfortunately he only got parts for the German convertibles, not the US convertible (which he says mine is)
I will try to take more pics of the interior for u guys to see.
Also of the rail (if it is the hood).
Where is usually the O-rings in the power hood assembly to be found (motor/tubes)?
And I have been reading about cylinders leaking and failing on other convertibles (Mercs etc) - does this apply to our cars?
Where do I see pics of your cars guys?
i'm assuming that it is internal o-rings with the motor and the hydraulic fluid bottle that is what's being mentioned. if o-rings leak, fluid will leak out from the bottle! all of our cars are in the "your 4th gen beauty" subforum, feel free to add yours!
But my leak is not from motor/bottle but opposite passenger side (see pic above).
Wil chkout those pics thks!
if it's the US convertible, the easier ! THere should be parts available in USA nowadays.
I kno - but i m in the UK - the shipping would be astronomical! :-(
depends on weight and size, I had some packages from the USA before and thought shipping was ok as long as you don't want ASAP delivery times
How long to arrive for u?
3 or 4 weeks. I don't care as they are not vital parts and it's not a daily driver for me.
If you keep your hood closed and drain the fluids you can wait as well .
Bloody ell even a carriage pigeon would b quicker - lol
The leak is definetly here and it looks like it's leaking out of the top of that piston holder (or whatever it's called) and losing pressure. Pull it out of there and see if the top section of the piston holder unscrews, it looks like it might do as the top section looks wider than the bottom section hinting it's a threaded top (it had to go together somehow), there will be seals and o-rings in there, remember that I have never seen one of these before so I'm flying by the seat of my ass (so to speak) :mrgreen
BTW, I was talking about myself with the nutter thing :mrgreen
Yes my exact thoughts!
I mean the piston thing - not u as a nutter
But i yet to find the correct fluid to top up!
Wot brand/grade do members here use?
:lol........... I often call myself a shit-rivet (don't ask) when I fook things up :lol
There are very few Vert owners here. Just go to your nearest Toyota dealer and ask about fluid or google.
So are you comfortable with pulling this out and having a go ?, I'm always curious about most things and look forward to see what's inside that sucker, leave the roof closed and get it outta there.
Just finding time and the space - its gonna be awfully cramp to get to and noway I can get a nice spanner in there to adjust the bolts/nuts!
