Hydraulic fluid leak - in front of rear tire

I came out to find a puddle behind my drivers door/infront of my rear tire and wondered what it was... until I started to put up the top and knew exactly what the fluid is.

I searched and found all the PDFs on the 6 cylinders, yet would prefer a DIY if anyone has replaced the main or storage compartment cylinders - especially since the PDF for the main cylinders starts with "remove convertible top"

I am going to assume it is the drivers side main cylinder that is leaking, yet need to check it - yet how? Its not the bow cylinder since the top would be stained. Its not the pump as I took out the trunk liner and inspected it. I don't suspect its the storage compartment cylinder as the leak is infront of the rear tire and the cylinder is behind the rear tire... right?

Help and pictures would be appreciated!
