05 vert! Found out the passenger side hydraulic cylinder is sluggish. The other side works great. I think I'll just replace the one. Any thoughts on this? I'm a fair mechanic, but never worked on a top mechanism before.
I tried bleeding it out after filling and refilling, but the cylinder seems bad.
