Q: Convertible top not coming down and leaking

The convertible top will not come down. It started leaking fluid from above the rear view mirror while I was trying to take it down.

Have a mechanic inspect the convertible top's mechanical components and hydraulic lines for the loss of fluids. Any leak in the hydraulic system can cause the operation to stop. The mechanics here at Your Mechanic would be happy to help.
