2016 G2 300 Trim Cyl Leaking

I have a trim cylinder leaking (dealer is 3 weeks out) and don't want to be without my boat the rest of the season.

Anyone know how to add fluid to the trim system? I know it takes Dextron III transmission fluid but dont see any plugs on the cylinders like other outboards.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
