Well, it sounds like you have nothing to loose by checking to see if there is fluid in there [maybe all the recent removals has done something?] .I'd start by check the rams. Also, a new pump must be much cheaper than a fixed wing!!!!
Hi, Richard H's previous post was on my behalf as I was having a problem with my spoiler and was about to try to bleed the system. My problem was different to the one you describe. My spoiler would go up fine but when it was coming down one side would stick. I had no leaks either. I strip my rams and motor off the car and tinkered with it. I started to go down the route of bleeding it but as soon as I looked at topping up the ram it was obvious there was plenty of fluid in there. Basically I ended up lubing the ram as best I could with some CHF and good old WD40. It has been fine since!
