    Repair Stock Rover Bottle Jack?

    Hi All,

    My stock jack seems to have leaked out all its oil... Is this an easy fix?

    Thanks,

    Throw it away, they all fail at some point. Best thing to do is go to Sears and buy a good one that won't fail.

    It can be rebuilt. It's not that bad. Save the money, it's a good design.

    Rebuilding seems easy enough: take apart, check seals, fill with new oil...?

    Good thing I have two of 'em...

    I filled mine with oil and nothing happens when I pump the lever. How do you get the air out if the system?

    Sounds like you should check and see if you have oil leaking by the piston. If the oil leaked out and all that was done to repair it was refill with oil. You most likely haven't solved the problem that let all the oil leak out in the fist place.

    Well the jack was working perfectly until I accidently opened the release screw too much and it popped out along with all the oil. So I just filled it back up and now it doesnt work.

    Now as it doesn't work, so what should be done next, so that it might work properly. Does there will be a need to replace the bottle..?
