I have a 2008 gl450 and the rear door is going down very slowly. Does that indicate that the motor is going out. Same question as before. I think I found the part.

Hello Lou I know it has been a while but I finally found the hydraulic pump how do I take it for air I have the keys open and you can see the pump it makes a loud touring know like when I try to open or close the trunk
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Loud turning noise
You can see the plastic reservoir on the pump make sure its got fluid in there. And not bone dry. Should be a low and high mark on it .
