Windshield Washer Connection Location

About the time I added my Aussie Clam hinge to my '05 Elise, my windshield washer pump died. With the increased distance added due to the tilt, my hose reach (insert smarta** comment here) and not having a replacement pump, I tucked the wiring out of the way. Fast forward about 4 years and I have the car apart. Thought I would take this opportunity to extend everything and get washer capabilities back but I can't find the plug in the harness!

Does anyone have a pic or link to a diagram that shows where the plug ties into the harness? I know it has to be rifomf but 3 beers later, I am still staring.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have any pics to share but, I recent had to blow my system out to get the washers working again.

I took the washer tank out to clean all the crap out of it, and I remember having to disconnect the wiring harness from the pump early on in the process...because the damn wire was so short...so, yeah, it can't have gone very far!

It is in the harness that runs on top of the frame by the (forget name of) sensor that kills the fuel pump in the event of a collision. Right under the coolant swirl pot.

The green and black wires connected to the red wires with crimp terminals are what you want.
