We're here with a replacement convertible top hydraulic cylinder for your 1983 through 1993 Mustang. Your mustang uses two of these: one mounted behind each quarter trim panel. When given pressure by the convertible top motor, these actually are what lift your top up and down. If you can hear the motor running, but your top is not going up or down like it's supposed to, many times the cylinder needs to be replaced. Our convertible top cylinder's the perfect part to replace that leaking factory cylinder. Remember, when installing these, the system runs off of automatic transmission fluid, not hydraulic fluid.
