B7 Cabriolet Fluid - When to Top Up

    Hi all,

    I have been having the seemingly usual roof issues, and am about the send the motor off for brush replacement.

    I have already cleaned the motor twice and after each time it works fine for a while, but then I get the same issues again. (roof works fine sometimes, but fails on other times)

    Upon removing the motor this time, I noticed that the hydraulic fluid level is just on/under min.

    My question is:

    Do you check the fluid when the roof is up or when the roof is down ?

    Many thanks

    I have just replaced the motor on mine a few weeks ago. I’d suggest that due to the motor’s location it’s a non service item but regardless access can only really be gained with the roof up. I topped my fluid up after replacing the motor, it was only a tiny top up and probably didn’t need it as it was very near the top level.
