Instructions are in the owners manual. There is a Allen bolt on the front of the pump that when loosened will let the top work manually. I found my wrench in the glove box. Be patient and good luck.

I did manage to get top down by adding fluid to pump before fluid leaked out. No Allen wrench , original owner probably removed it? Pump is discontinued so i am going to order rebuilt one from
Top Hydraulics, who seem to have good customer reviews.

Good deal here all the connections are of the quick variety. Very easy to switch out. Can’t believe it went out that quick. Mine’s an 07 still works fine did have to replace the mechanism that pulls the tonneau cover down.

I found info on YouTube or under Top Hydraulics online. I did not have to replace my pump as it was not leaking but it looks pretty easy once you figure out how to open Tonneau cover, your manual should show you where release pull is to open manually. The Top Hydraulics video shows you where the 6 Hydraulic Cylinders that open/close top are located to see if they are leaking. I had a few questions and called Top Hydraulics and left message and within an hour Klaus called me back.
I am very happy with the People at Top Hydraulics, my leaking old hydraulic cylinders arrived back at their shop on Monday and they credited my core charge back to my credit card Wednesday. Good Luck
