    Re: hardtop hydraulic system

    So update: I never found a way to bleed the system. only being one cylinder that had air in it i just ran it as it was. i would hold the open button till it almost stopped moving, released. and after a second or two the deck lid would still open a little when it stopped i'd hit the button again. i'd have to do this two or three times till it fully opened. after a couple days <once or twice a day> it would work better. took about 2 weeks but now it full works with no problems. just kept cycling till all the air was out of the system.
