I think there was a segment in the video about the hydraulic lines and removing them from the pump, the guys at Top Hydraulics did mention that there is a stamped metal clip which is locked in place by a blue plastic retainer. You can remove the retainer and just turn the stamped metal clip and the lines can be removed, so fairly simple to do. I ended up removing the hex nut in the middle and removing the metal clip in the video which was more effort than is actually required.
I assume that is what you are referring to? The hydraulic lines?
I have not had the extra time to update the video with some of the notes Top Hydraulics gave me as to doing the job, I plan on doing some work on my R170 soon, bigger brakes and the ASP pulley etc. and I will try to shoot some addendum video about the hydraulic replacements for the vario top.
The video has played more than 500 times as of today so hopefully it has helped a few people out.
