LUX G BT 2B not closing properly since manual override
#1
I have 2 x LUX G BT 2B arms which had to be manually overridden whilst I was away due to a power failure. 

In doing so they lost some fluid out of the override screw.  The gate opens correctly, but when closing it closes fully and then opens on one side by 300mm.  I'm guessing we need to top it up with oil?  Do we fill up via the override screw or elsewhere?  The diagram in the manual is not clear!

Or is it not the oil that is causing the issue?

Hi,

thanks for the message,

i do not believe you can re add hydraulic fluid to these motors and BFT usually can carry this out at a cost.
