The RAM (hydraulic lift) has failed, you can check the under side of the engine cover to check for moisture (leaking hydraulic fluid), which is not good for painted surfaces.

This is very common and unfortunately expensive to fix. Most people find a way to leave it down / up position or upgrade the entire engine cover and wing to the GT2 version (What I did) which is lighter and has no moving parts to fail. Several vendors offer the GT2 front and rear, *highly* recommend the urethane vesion of the front bumper if you go that direction.

You might be able to get used parts but the eventuality of it or the other side failing is a probability

Throw the pump away and save weight - get a couple of spacers machined up and fit them to the inside of the pistons to hold the spoiler in the up position - I did this on mine - a bit of mucking around, but looks good and saves well over $1000 for the parts to fix it. If you make sure the spolier is held up at the correct 'up' height, you don't get any warning messages on the dash either.
