Hello there,

Yours being a 2005 must be last of TS soft top convertible.

They have many parts to the system, and many failure areas.

The first thing for you to check is whether the luggage blind is pulled out and fitted where it should go.

The pump reservoir is visible behind an access panel in front of the RH taillamp.
