Spider hood 'leaking'

Hi all,

I have a phase 2 spider with a roof issue

At the back of the hood there are four struts, two each side. The two outside struts (one either side, closest to the bodywork) are leaking hydraulic fluid. This is obviously causing an issue with the hood automatic lift (it drops fine)

I know i can release the fluid and do it manually, but I also have these two struts from my last phase two

Anyone know if it is an easy remove and refit process, or would i be better using the manual override?

Ta muchly
