916 hydraulic removal help please
. My Fathers 916 Spider phase 2 has a leaking ram and I wondered if anyone had experience in removal of this and can give me any advise on how to and what to avoid? its the ram located on the drivers side nearest the outer body attached to the roof canvas metal bracket work. It looks like it is held in place by a star shaped long bolt at the top and bottom. I assume I just get these out (very tight work area) and it just lift out? while out can I put the roof back up until I get the ram fixed or leave it in the same position? is it a 1 man job or easier with 2 present? etc etc. Also, to refill the hydraulic oil, do I simply take the brass bolt out of the top of the motor reservoir and pour the oil in? to the top or in between the 2 lines marked on the side? etc etc.
Any advise would be very welcome, thank you in advance
