Sept. 9, 2020 — Top Hydraulics, an auto parts manufacturer in Florence, is featured in the new “Wheeler Dealers” episode “Saab’s Your Uncle,” with an expected worldwide audience of 200 million viewers!

“Wheeler Dealers” is hugely popular worldwide. The theme of the show is how charismatic show host Mike Brewer buys a classic vehicle that he always had an eye on, then he and multi-talented mechanic Ant Antstead fix up the car thoroughly and professionally, and Mike sells the car in the end for a profit. 

This “Wheeler Dealers” episode will air first worldwide in September 2020. It features a 2001 Saab 9-3 Viggen convertible with faulty hydraulics in the top, among other problems.

Show host Brewer visits Top Hydraulics to witness the process of rebuilding the hydraulic cylinders for the Saab’s convertible top and to chat about hydraulics for convertible tops. 

Rebuilding the hydraulic components of modern convertibles is what Top Hydraulics specializes in, shipping parts all over the world. 

“We had a blast when the film crew showed up for a long day of filming,” said Top Hydraulics owner Klaus Witte. “We never thought there was so much filming involved from multiple angles for just a few minutes of airtime. Visits to businesses like ours normally take up seven minutes in a 45-minute show. Mike Brewer and Ant Antstead are relatable and familiar to most car enthusiasts, the show is humorous and there are lots of tips for do-it-yourselfers. We are proud to be a part of it!”

Through cable TV or Satellite TV in the US, the episode will be airing on the Discovery Channel on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at 9 p.m. EDT.

The show, Episode 3, Season 22, can also be viewed over the internet now through MotorTrend, owned by the Discovery Channel:

“Wheeler Dealers” episodes can also be purchased on Amazon and on iTunes starting Sept. 9.
