Yes pump is in between the back seat and the trunk, but you can only get to it if you have the back half of the top up and the boot up at the same time. This is a small space that you have to work in, but you have to remove all of the covers and metal plate to get to it. Good luck

In the trunk remove the fabric cover on the wall behind the back seat.on the left side is a round hole(small) i used a piece of tubing attached to the hydralic fluid to reach the top of the fill container. you can also remove the bolts on the bottom of the metal frame there and lift it a little to get your hand in there. it's tight but i just did it last month.good luck.
