(kinda) newb with a cpl questions

I've just recently (yesterday) got back into the mustang family, its been about three years, and I am so excited... or was.

My fault but a hasty decision and took the owners word on condition and now i'm planning projects lol.

First off, convertible tops. The motor/pump runs really slow, but it does run. How to check fluid level and likelyhood of needed a new pump? its a 2000 with about 130k on it.

Also, the top doesnt shut all the way. The motor cycles just fine but it doesn'tline up with the latches on the windshield. It does appear the arms on the drivers rear are bent and rubbing, and where the "hinge" is in the middle of the roof isn't stright on either side, makes a slight "v" when looking at it. is this a simple repair, adjustment or should i look at a shop to just replace the whole thing?

ok moving on... the drivers side headlight is extremely dim on both high and low beam, and the signal is a rapid blink (all lights in rear are fine) and there seems to be some funky wiring going on. I've looked but not come across a complete headlight wiring harness to just replace it all... do they make such a thing or is it part of another assembly or should i just focus on tracing the one connector down?

sorry for the questions, I've never had any luck with the forum search tools. Thanks in advance for any help.
