Thanks for all the great info here...
I have removed one main roof cylinder that was leaking and I also replaced the two struts that support the roof when raising and lowering.
My questions is, since I replaced the struts, do you think I can get by repairing only one cylinder? I'm on a tight budget. And I do the repair work myself - no local shop involved.
Thanks in advance!

It's a crap shoot, the pros say the seals in the cylinders age and when one leaks probably the others aren't far behind. But who knows, you might get another year or two, maybe even more, from the others. Make sure you use the best seals available for that type of oil. Good luck.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

Mine is leaking fluid from one connection. The top goes up and down fine, the only problem is the leakage.
I replaced an o-ring but the problem persists. I wonder if I have to get the cylinders rebuilt.
