Soft top hydrolic fluid

So the soft top has started to lift a bit slow and sounds like there is some air in the system. I believe they are self bleeding so I believe it may be low on fluid as there are no visible leaks.

What type of fluid should I be putting in? I've found the tank hidden away in the back.

Undid read somewhere to use power steering fluid. I just wanted to be sure before I mess things up.

Thanks in advance

Mine does this, fluid is full, but just gets slower and slower. I've been using it manually last few times.

This is the recommended fluid and what I use, but I believe any equivalent power steering fluid will do:
