Is it even hydraulically driven? If it is, the quickest/best way to find the location would be the owner's manual.

Slaab4life is correct, I don't think hydraulics have been used in convertible tops for a long time , due to economics..But I think the "vert" battery will not last as long.

:eek: Wow. Learn something new everyday! I guess that is among the 1,001 changes made between the NG900 and the 9-3: Go from 6 electric motors to a hydraulic system.

Wrong again, not the first, nor the last time - for me..

I knew the big old American car convertibles used hydraulics, but then I thought they all switched over to electric motors with the advent of powerful high amp alternators..
I imagine the hydraulics are quieter and faster.
