Default Convertible Top Won't Retract

I have a 2005 Dream Cruiser. I went to put the top down this afternoon, and it grinds and goes only about an inch. I smelled something like fluid on the drive home, and I see there is a few drops of green liquid that is dripping down in front of the left rear tire. What powers the top - is it hydraulic or electric? What might this mean, and any ideas on the cost to diagnose and fix?

Thanks in advance,

Mine has had same problem for over a year. You can open bleeder valve in trunk and open and close by hand fairly easily and quickly. I just haven't found one at a junk yard to replace, yet
