I have a 2008 MP3 400. I am looking inside the inspection hole of the suspension lock gear pump assembly. Attached to the top of the hydraulic piston is a small braided cable that disappears into the actuator cap. What is it's function?

So I figured it out. The cable is about 1.5 inches long and is attached to a swivel ball in the top of the actuator. It's purpose seems to be to ensure the hydraulic piston is pulled fully open when the locking system is deactivated. That's great. So the end at the piston is broken off. How important, how serious, is this insurance cable. The system seems to work perfectly without the cable attached. Thoughts. LK
