Roof Hydraulic cylinder leaking - should the trunk lid still open?

I tried to lower the top but alot of oil leaks from the roof cylinder and the vario reservoir goes empty, would the trunk lid still open regardless of the roof hydraulic leak?

I will be fixing the roof hydraulic what O-ring size does it take?

also is there a way to test each Switch?

Possibly not !

If the leak in the cylinder means that the roof doesn't release from the front , the sucessive signals for the trunk etc won't follow ..
