Windshield washer pump, where is it, how best to get to it?

The hole in the reservoir for the pump is on the front, but toward the
outside.  I've not looked with the car on a hoist whether you can get to
it.  On the V8, you can get to it, but that reservoir's pump wiring is more
straight toward the front.  I HAVE replaced a V8 WW pump.   Recalling how
the 200's reservoir sits relative to the frame, I think you need to pull it
loose.  That'll require removing retainers both above and below.  With
Eurolight's protrusion into the space, I'll bet you'll need to take off the
bumper and pull the light.  I don't think the airbox removal will be any
easier than taking out the light.
