Megane I Cabriolet - leaking hydraulic ram

Hi there!

Has anyone had any experience of swapping out the main hydraulic ram that lifts / lowers the roof?

Mine has been leaking (and judging by the inside of the car behind the rear panel for some time)

Either i can live with it, top up the fluid reservoir and wipe away the excess fluid periodically - or find a replacement and swap it out

Is it merely a case of swapping it for a good one, then bleeding the system? is it bled!

Thoughts please!
