    On another thread Unit504 sent me a link for a 'how to' access the convertible roof hydraulic pump which was very useful.

    As a general question to roof experts, is there any way or need to bleed the hydraulic unit which operates the roof? For instance, I am assuming that if I replace any hydraulic ram I am going to get a loss of oil and some risk that air may get into the system. Similarly, if you get low on oil, air may get into the system. Any info much appreicated.

    Hi the system self bleeds . You should operate the roof 10 times and check oil level hope this helps
