Checking Hydraulic Fluid Levels ?
I've read a number of threads here in the XK8 section concerning the dreaded "green shower of death" issue experienced when your convertible top hydraulic system decides to give up the ghost. What I haven't seen here on the forum or read in my owners manual is whether we should routinely check the level of hydraulic fluid in the pump. If so, what is the procedure, and how often should it be performed? And what exactly is the fluid?
