Oily rear floorboard

Postby jcrown7 » Sat Sep 26, 2015 2:18 pm

Alright, so my 92 vert gets fairly small amounts of oily fluid in the floorboard behind the seats. I've ripped the original carpet out and ordered new carpet...but don't want to put the new stuff in until I figure out where this oilu fluid is coming from.
Any ideas on what this is and/or where it's coming from?

Thanks in advance

Gotta be the top hydraulic fluid. Probably a leak in the lines, ram cylinders or the pump. There is not that much to check - if you find a leaking connection, try gently tightening the couplings first. Good luck.

Where did you order your carpet?

Also, I agree with the above, has to be oil from the top mechanism.
