if you reach down behind the engine on the passenger side you will feel the cap-it is pressure sensitive. you can take it off with one turn. it is a tight fit but is possible. then to add fluid you need a funnel with a long stem. you can feel when the funnel is in and add your fluid. After you add fluid replace the cap and start the car. take a flshlight and shine down near the pump to make sure you are not spraying fluid all over everything. If you are you need a new pump.

I spent a couple of hours last night working on the same problem. I was able to check the level by jacking up the car and taking off the passenger side tire. I had to reach it from below the car and was able to check the level. Good luck on adding to it if it is needed though. What a bad design this is!

On the passenger side, near the firewall and down a foot or two, you'll find it. You can access it from above, but it isn't easy.

this is a major pain in the butt,and the design is horrible...I had to remove cross bar in back and coolant overflow just to get at it!
