Ballast pump X-45

Where are the ballast pumps on a 2006 X-45. Are they behind the muffler mounted behind the engine? Is it tough to replace the umpellers? They pump really slow. Anyone have photos

not 100% for sure but pretty sure the back pumps are located behind each wall in the rear lockers.

You might find them behind the center rear carpeted wall in the engine bay.

"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!

They are directly behind the engine behind the carpeted board. They are a pain to get to, two people will help out dramatically. We just leave the board out now.
