Draining hydraulic fluid for convertible top
Posted by kw27 [Email] (more from kw27) on Thu, 1 Sep 2011 20:09:30
Many years ago I followed this post for my '99 saab 9-3 http://saabnet.com/tsn/bb/NG900/index.html?bID=150250 and it worked great. I used 5W30 synthetic motor oil. Well the oil has evaporated(?) and it is time to refill. I have no sign of the fluid leaking, but it was almost gone. Seriously, I don't know where the fluid went. Anyways the motor oil seem to work well, but it is probably not the best good idea to continue to use the motor oil, based on various other post.
I have 2 questions.
1.) I would rather not mix the oils. How can I flush the oil oil? It looks like I can unscrew the screws that hold the resolver let it flow out, but how can one drain it from the hoses?
2.) I have a good amount of S6161 (power stear hydraulic) oil. Can I use that or should I pony up the $40 for the OEM stuff. If I do flush up, how much will I need after fluching?
