Automatic window opener

I have a lean to greenhouse with an automatic window opener which is old & badly leaking now. Are these easy to change (on my own) and if so any recommendations for a good inexpensive one please?
Thanks

    You need to get the same as the old one to change easily. I got a new one(different brand to old one) and we had to drill new holes in the aluminium frame to make it fit.
    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    Can you post a photo moragb1?  The bayliss ones are pretty reliable but all of the decent ones cost £20 or more although you may be able to buy just a cylinder if you can identify the old one.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Thank you so much Fidgetbones. Are they easy to exchange? I have no back muscle and cannot stretch so worried I cannot do it myself. Are there clear instructions? Thanks for your help. Every day is a new learning curve for me ha ha xxx
