Faulty soft top

Hi, I have a 1998 Z3.

I have a problem with my soft top. Recently, it hasnt been opening properly. The top gets stuck halfway, and the arms have to be folded manually for the top to open fully. '

Also, upon closing, the top closes like 95% but doesnt line up there after.

The top has to be forced shut.

Ive spoken to a few people, some say the system has to be bled?

Any information or advice please?

Many thanks
