    Hydrolic fluid bottle location?

    Hi all, I bought my A4 2.4 Cabriloet 05 plate 2 months ago and I love it.However , yesterday as I was takingthe roof down it did all the motions such as windows down, unclipped at front and began to go back but just as the back cover lifted it stopped! I had to figure out ,with the help of some very kind passer byers and a smart phone and a google search,how to mauanlly put it back up again.Success! But I tried the roof again and the same thing happened.Now I am hoping that this is just a low on hydrolic fluid thing going on here but i cannot locate the hydrolic fluid bottle for the roof to check.I have search the boot for over an hour!!!!Can some one be so kind as to tell me where i could find it.

    All help much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Julia

    This is the reset procedure:

    ignition off

    remove the osf dash end cap where the fuse box lives and there at the side of the fuse box lives the release tool

    On the front cross member above the interior mirror there is a square plastic blank

    flick the blank out and insert the tool until the cog engages the motor and turn the red part of the tool handle to engage the tool into the motor

    turn the tool anti clockwise to release the top locks and the roof will pop up a bit

    Remove the tool and get a second person to lift the roof slowly from the opposite side of the vehicle until front section of the roof is pointing upwards and at the same time lift the rear part of the roof up.

    Second person hold the roof in this position and pop the rear seat centre section out

    The tool is needed again and it locates inside the ski hatch facing upwards

    push the tool upwards again until you locate the motor and repeat the process for the front lock

    the roof box will pop up and you need to lift the lid upright and slowly allow the roof to collapse into the storage box

    close the lid and lock the motor with the tool then unlock the motor

    lift the lid and lift the roof slowly until the front section is pointing at the sky and then shut the lid down and lock the motor

    Allow the front section to drop into the front locks and lock the motor

    the roof has been opened and closed so the lock micro switches should have reset.


    Turn the engine on and open the roof fully then close it fully and that's should do it

    if the operation is still faulty then there is a fault

    Thank you for your replies,I think I did all of that yesterday with the help of passers byers, BUT will try again tomorrow when I can get more help.
    I do hope it is as simple as that! Fingers crossed.
