    Is it as simple as just taking the bolt out and adding fluid or does it need to be bled afterwards. 8' Diamond. Thanks.

    As long as air hasn't gotten into the system (I'm making the assumption you're just topping up) it's just a matter of remove the fill plug & add fluid. Make sure your lift cylinder is all the way down when you do this.

    If there is air in the system, you may need to enlist a helper to work the controls while you crack the fittings at the cylinders to get the air our.
