Used my Sorento hydraulic jack to change the caravan wheel and it worked fine first time but next time I used it it would not fully retract stays a couple of inches open. Tried opening and closing the valve all the way open, stood on it hit it with a brick but it wouldn't retract is it dead or am I missing something?

Try using it a few times. The seals may have gone a bit dry. Fully up to fully down.

Thanks andychk I tried that and even with the weight of my caravan on it it would not retract beyond half height so its dead and gone to the tip. If anyone knows of a jack going spare please let me know as it was a good jack better than the cheap one I have had to buy
