996tt rear spoiler issues

One side gets caught up a little and gets stuck. Then the dash light does on. There is fluid on the one ram. Does this mean a complete rebuild to make work properly again?

What was yours doing or not doing? What repairs did you make?

Just had the wing motor replaced on the '15 911 under warranty. It was parking a bit cock-eyed and the panel gap on the RH side was way off. Tech said there was a spring that breaks in the motor mechanism causing it to not retract properly. Dealer fix to replace the motor was $3500, cheerfully covered under CPO warranty. Somewhat common problem I'm told.
