    On my e 60 it is start to leak fluid out the top seal. I want to just change the top lid, If i take the 3 nut off the top is that all you need to do to replace it. Then put the new one and put the nuts back on and we should be back up and running, right.

    There's a seal around where the ram goes through called a wiper, replace that as well. Is your fluid level to high or is the cap broken? There is a o ring around the inside of the cap also.

    It's very easy to do, keep a extra cap on hand for that break down in the middle of the night.

    The cup seal at bottom of ram also needs changed. & other seals with the ram. My problem was a crack sub base. Rams was slowly leaking down & slow angle to left when was leaking down.

    Do NOT reuse the nylon seals under the 3 nuts. They are one time use only. Most of the time when removing these 3 nuts the studs will unscrew from the base. There is also a filter inside the reservoir, I would clean this while I had the top off. Good luck.

    On an E60? There isn't one. They have no filtration before the gear pump, it's after and located behind the hex plug on the front side of the sump base.

    Leave the pump on the headgear and take off your cap, first you have to remove the bolt that connects your ram to the lift arm..then pull the 3 bolts off the cap. The wiper seal should come out fairly easy. Make sure the lift ram is smooth with no rust pits and replace the other seals at the bottom of the ram.
