Well, I guess it's my turn. My cylinders lasted almost 14 years. Found a puddle of fluid on the passenger side. Question for you experts: How long should I expect the removal of all 8 cylinders to take? I want to have them all rebuilt. I'm just looking for an estimate, please.
There is a shop in Bradenton, Fl. that does the entire job, from removal, rebuild and replace. It took three days.

I need to know when i reinstall all my hydraulic cylinders fill the tank with fluid, fuse back in do i just hit to roof open button or do i need to do anything else before i try to open the roof ?????
Manually move roof up and down, helper on one side, gets air out of system. System self purging but lots of air will take long time and could get pump hot from lot of use. Start with Roof Cover first, move up down a few times then try roof switch.

The one thing not covered is as soon as you can collapse the cylinders .
if you put a mark on shaft it will have to be replaced 100.00 extra each
