Hydraulic roof Trunk Lift Actuator

Hello all,

Still a relatively new member to the forum, so please bear with me.

I have a 98 SLK230, and recently had some roof troubles, which I talked about in THIS thread. If you have some time, you can read through it as I explain my problems and symptoms in detail .

Long story short, I think my left side trunk lift actuator is leaking hydraulic fluid, not any of the cylinders in the roof itself. I've corresponded with Ewer and his kit can't fix it. Have any of you guys encountered this problem before, and does anybody have any advice on whether the fix is possibly DIY-able or not? If not, as Ewer says, where should I take it in the DFW area to get it repaired (other than the dealership, which will probably charge me way too much?)

Thanks in advance, and please let me know if I can clarify anything.
