Default Need TT Spoiler options

My spoiler hydraulic pump went out and I need to find a solution for my spoiler. Currently the OEM system and parts are removed and just have the 2 holes in the deck.

Options that I am aware of are below, but I don't know what I don't know so if there is something else please chime in.

1- replace with new factory parts
2- reinstall OEM rams and put at a fixed/manual wing
3- install a deck and fixed wing, will most likely require paint/bodyshop
4- unsure if this is possible, but can the TT deck be used with a fixed wing?
5- ???? open to ideas

update-
6- Ebwerks manual kit http://ebwerks.com/models-996997.html

Isn't Kevin at ultimatemotorworks now rebuilding the oem rams? And if I recall, after rebuilding them, they are easily serviceable with replaceable seals...

No idea what the cost is or turn-around time.

But your failure was the pump, not the cylinders??

Call Kevin at umw or find a rebuilder.

Or plug the holes and leave it as is.

I have an email into Kevin. When I talked to him a couple of months ago, he was not taking any more repairs due to the volume.

Damn. I guess that explains why he didn't respond to my inquiry (no worries, Kevin!).

If everyone could DIY everything..

Most regular folks wouldn't know how to make that bag of bolts.

Dave's contributions to the forum are much appreciated, and I've never read a bad review of his product, but many of us want something more "original." Multiple options are always a good thing. The OP (and everyone here) is clearly aware that solution exists.

If you plan on keeping the car then go for Dave's Rennkit electric rams. Never look back.
