Good Afternoon!
I have a 5 year old Fisher XLS.
I went to change the fluids and change the hydraulic filter inside the reservoir cap.
The cap itself held in by 4 bolts did not come out easy. I had to wiggle it enough to get it to pop.
Now when I am re-installing it it is giving me troubles getting back on.
It seems that the big "nut" or bolt" that is closest to plow side is hanging it up and not letting it seat appropriately.
I am looking for any tips or tricks to get the reservoir cap to sit flat.
I have tried to look up information online and do some research before I came on here but Fisher has virtually no information on the proper
procedures on how to complete this task.
I appreciate all input!
Phil

If you are referring to the reservoir, I clean the area where the O-ring fits as it can get dirt and corrosion there. If anything is in the way, remove it.
I lightly sand down the inside of the can to remove any rust. Make sure it is all nice and clean. Then I put a little white grease on the O-ring and the can, then install.
You should be able to start the little bolts. I also put anti seize on these. Do not over tighten and strip or break them.
