There's a convertible section, you'll get more help there.

Could be a number of issues. The pump and fluid reservoir is on the drivers side in the trunk behind the carpet. There's a few push pins to remove, then just pull the carpet back and check. If you're low on fluid then you have a leak, most likely at one of the 6 cylinders.
