I have an issue with the top, it unlatches fine then the pump just runs and doesn't open. I removed the pump from its hidden place and added some fluid. Turned out one of the lines coming out of the pump which attaches somewhere has come loose. I am trying to find out where do the lines attach when coming out of the pump. There are 2 banjo bolts coming out of the pump. Each has 2 lines going out, one of the lines on the right bolt is just detached from where it should be, can't find out where it goes.

Sure, here are the locations of the hydraulic lines for the convertible top and how to change them out. Check out the images (below). Let us know if you need anything else.

Above the second picture you attached, you see the number 3? Above it and to the left there is a line that is held into the cylinder by a clip. I am missing that clip, what would you suggest they'll it? Can't find it anywhere.

That would be a wrecking yard or dealer part unless you can rig something. Can you upload some images? Maybe I can help.

Can't find it anywhere, not even a dealer item. The clip is on the bottom in the picture. Can't make anything to hold the line, they under pressure so got to have the clip.
