I have a 2001 VW Cabrio and the convertable power roof has stopped working. I think it is the hydrolic cylinder as there is a small leak of fluid under the car where the cylinder is located. i filled the fluid in the master cylinder in the truck and the level went back down. how difficult is it to replace this part?
If there is a leak, then replacing the fluid will do no good.
This isn't really something you should try to fix yourself because there are hydrolic lines that need to be disconnected and such. You also need to know exactly what is causing the leak so that you replace the correct part.
It would be best to take your vehicle to the dealership to have this repair done. Sorry.

It is hard to say what the actual problem is or how much it will cost for the repair without actually seeing it. The best thing for you to do is take it to a dealer or ASE certified technician to get a diagnosis and cost estimate.
