Mercedes Convertible and Saab Convertible Roof Hydraulic Cylinder Repairs.

Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics Gold Coast have had re manufactured many hydraulic cylinders for various models of Mercedes Benz and Saab convertible.

Unlike the Holden Astra convertibles that usually have their High Pressure Hydraulic Hoses fail, the Mercedes Benz and Saab Convertible Models have failures of the High Pressure seals inside the linear actuators (Cylinders) that lift, move, close or lock the the roof in place.

We have re sealed Cylinders large and small cylinders for the Mercedes Benz and Saab Convertible Roofs.
The High pressure Hoses are not usually a problem with these models but we have re manufactured new hoses,  installed them back into the vehicle, topped up the oil tank and reset the hydraulic system. 

 Mercedes Benz will only sell you a new Cylinder,  Saab may now not have any parts available for you. But you now know who can help you solve your convertible problems, 
We estimate that we would invoice around between $200 to $350 in labour to remove and install a single cylinder plus between $80 to $150 per unit to dismantle clean and reseal it .
