« on: May 02, 2020, 07:59:45 pm »
Can anyone tell me where to find the place to add hydro fluid for the top on 85 GTS?

The reservoir is inclusive with the hydraulic motor, which is located in then passenger side compartment of the trunk.  Check your lines to make sure they haven’t gotten brittle with age.  They could be leaking.  I used mineral oil.  Less messy and non corrosive.
