The website has step-by-step instructions for inspection, removal, and re-installation of all R129 cylinders.
Top Hydraulics upgrades and rebuilds all top hydraulic cylinders for all Mercedes convertibles. R129, R170, R171, R230, W124, W208, W209. They also work on cylinders for Porsche 911, Porsche Boxster, and BMW convertibles. There is a benzworld discount of $5 per cylinder, which currently makes their price on a basic upgrade for a set of 12 cylinders $500 for benzworld members. Payment by check, PayPal, or credit card through the website.
Top Hydraulics has developed their own seals for convertible top cylinders that feature a PTFE back-shell (PTFE stands for Polytetrafluoroethylene, which DuPont trademarked as Teflon). The PTFE provides outstanding chemical resistance, as well as very low friction. The U-cup portion of their main seals is made of enhanced material for better chemical resistance, heat resistance, and slowed decomposition, as compared to Mercedes' original Polyurethane seals.
Top Hydraulics offers a three-year warranty, and longer warranties or lifetime warranties are optional. Top Hydraulics has been a sponsor of this site since 2010, and Klaus Witte of Top Hydraulics has contributed to many threads as 'Lighthouse'.
