1-Go behind rear seat and remove vinyle and cardboard covering.2-Locate the motor/hydrolic fluid reservoir (if on knees in rear seat facing rear window will be on right side).3-On right side of motor unit will be a rubber stopper, remove this and with a large plastic syringe, remove hydrolic fluid.4-Replace rubber stopper and the convertible top can then be operated manually.Remember, if you want to operate top electrically again, fluid must be replaced.

Yes but you might have to get the bcm off the car you are taking the dash out of. I have a 91 Lebaron convertible that came from factory with the digital dash.

If you hear a clicking noise, there is power getting to it you just have a bad motor. if nothing happens, check the fuse. you can always put it up and down manually until you fix it.

yes.. most parts are good thru years 1989 - 1995.. He is correct, the only parts that are different are the engines, the transmissions, and the headlights. Most simple parts that dont relate to those should work.

That is a good thing. You want the turn signals to work.

Unlatch the latches at the top of the window, then press the convertible top button down. this button is located near the armrest. If this does not work you must aquire a new convertible top motor. from the trunk, remove hyd. fluid from the conv. top pump, operate top by hand. worked for me for years

remove back up tire in back right behind seat

If the problem started after you replaced a fuse, you need to check that the fuse is good and installed properly.

On eBay there about $160 to $200 dependiing on if you need the rear window. You'll have to remove back seats to get at the complete convertible frame. The tops will come with instructions. Its a lot of work and very time consuming plan for a whole weekend.

There is a manual knob located on the bottom of the headlight door motor, the motor is right behind the grill.

Yes, it fits (if both are 4 bangers or if both are V6)

check the fuse box, maybe there's a problem with the connection between the switch and spray. bring it to a mechanic if you don't want to get your hands dirty :)

Unhook the hydraulic lines use something to catch the fluid from the ends of the lines. Then push the top down slowly do not rehook the lines or it will not work. The motor can be romoved if you want to. The motor is behind the back seat under the well cover. The top will be manual after following the steps above. Hope this helps you.

I have a 1994 Chrysler lebaron convertible GTC the top motor went out I changed the relay which is right beside the top motor. And that did not fix the problem so I got a ice cream bucket and unhooked the two oil lines that attach to the motor which is behind the back seat under the well cover. I put the ends of the oil lines in the ice cream bucket and removed the top motor the a friend and I pushed the top down by hand to push out all the oil from the lines. Now my convertible top is manual. Don't put lines back on motor or it will not work.

One of your bulbs is burned out. Replace it and test. To determine which one turn on your signal and see if one bulb stays lit with the other not doing anything. Otherwise, check them both and replace the one with a bad filament.

get under the hood disconnect the neg battery terminal connectiion,until repair can be made

The wiper motor on a 1992 Chrysler LeBaron won't work if the motor has seized up or the fuse has blown. The switch inside the cabin or the wiring can also come loose and cause this problem.

crawl under the front of the car . Right behind the center of the bumpre using your arm or a tool, manually relase the hood latch

its on the same part where you turn them on i went to the junk yard and got the whole thing dash piece and all for $5

Anything is possible. It was never offered as a convertible, so it will be all custom work.

The same size that was in there is what will work with out major modifications.
