Evening all....

After some help, I have a 2001 Atego horse lorry that I need to tilt the cab to get to the engine.
Both hydraulic locks are released but the cab only lifts a few inches then stops and the pump goes hard and you struggle to push the bar down.
Have I missed something to release it?

Cheers

Yes, Valve seems to work opening and closing... Set to open the cab starts to go up and then just stops. Pump goes very hard as if there is big resistance..
Last time the cab went up the pipe between the two locks split so they are currently disconnected, The pump is direct to the cab ram. I need to raise cab to fit new pipe etc.

Thanks

Have you opened/raised the front grill panel? Not sure if it applies this model but certainly many others.
