You can hear the pump working when pushing the control lever but nothing happens after the boot swinged out.
The oil bin is about half full. Could this be the reason for stopping before the roof is supposed to swing off? Or?
What kind of liquid must be used if there is a need to fill it up...
I have recently bought an EOS and got the dreaded ‘convertible top to workshop message’. Diagnostics came back as an open circuit on the hydraulic roof unit. Very grateful to VoxMag for his great posts on removing the case:
I hope this listing is of help to you guys with a duff EOS roof motor.
Back in Jan 2013.I bought an Eos with the dreaded flooded boot/stuffed roof motor problem.
After been given a £1150 quote by VWfor the part alone,I decided to see if I get my own unit sorted out.
The long story...
EOS Hydraulic Roof/Pump Motor unit complete.
Has your EOS roof died due to water in the boot floor? Yup me too!
The new unit from VW is waaaay over £1'000 and then you've got fitting on top.
This is a fully working and tested unit.It does not need coding to your car and will fit all...
