Default 2000 Mustang Convertible Top Piston Repair

The top on my convertible will no longer go back up. I took it into the garage expecting to have to replace the pump. However, the mechanic found that the piston seals are bad and fluid leaks out of the pistons so the system doesn't maintain enough pressure to put the top back up. He tried to order new seals and replace the old ones, but Ford no longer makes them for the 2000 Mustang. Does anyone know where I can get after-market seals that will work?

Thanks!

I've gotten them from salvage yards for a few dollars. You can also get them from places on-line like www.mpsautosalvage.com
