    The pump is in the cubby hole above the rear passenger wheel in the boot. It is covered with foam and has a cable tie round it.

    If you get a new pump you will need it recoding to have any of the features you have at the moment.

    If you re-use your pump it wont need recoding. You can get the recon kits on ebay somewhere.
