Lt the cylinder down as low as you can get it, depending on which cylinder, Turn unit off and work the hydraulic levers to release the pressure, If this is a boom cylinder, yo will want to block the boom so it can't drop. Then loosen the hydraulic hoses to the cylinder. That will ensure the cylinder has no pressure, then remove the hoses, and the remove the two pins holding the cylinder in place while supporting the cylinder. That should get the cylinder out for repair.
