Do a search for purging the hydraulics. I think it's just a matter of opening a valve and then closing it again. Seemed to be a common issue if I remember right.

Paul, see my last post under the 'Getting at the top motor' thread.

Step-by-step access and top off fluid on electro-hydraulic top motor.

Hardest part is getting the top well mat out and back in again. If I ever have to do it again I'm gonna make a one-inch hole over the fill plug and put a snap cover over the hole.
