You must send your cylinders in for rebuild service. Top Hydraulics averages a 2-day turn around time. Front lock and main lift cylinders must be received with lines attached and intact. The lines on the trunk lid cylinders are detachable.
Core Exchange is currently available only for the R171 SLK front lock cylinder. There is a $30 surcharge for this service, PLUS a refundable deposit of $120. Core deposit will be refunded after we receive your old front lock cylinder back with lines attached and intact, as well the shaft not being scratched by tools. Either scratched shaft or damaged lines result in reduced core refund. Top Hydraulics manufactures replacement shafts and replacement hoses, but there is significant cost involved.
When considering the labor involved in removing one cylinder compared to a full set of cylinders, it is usually best to have all cylinders upgraded at the same time. The reason is, the majority of the labor involved is in removing access panels, and once the panels are removed, it is comparatively not much more work to remove all cylinders at once. Remember, the rebuild service for all cylinders at once costs about as much as a single replacement cylinder, and you get a much better product...
