Default Power Steering Pump Location

I have a 2008 Saturn Aura 2.4L and am trying to find the location of the power steering pump. I understand its electric. Might someone post a picture?

Also on the alternator does the wire that plugs into it a separate wire harness or part of a larger one?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

This may help; http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=196498 If you have electric power steering, the electric motor is part of the steering assembly under the steering wheel. It will be obvious when you look by the brake pedal. Honda may be the first with electric power steering in the S2000. The motor was mounted on the steering rack and pinion assembly. GM, I think, has electric power steering motors inside under the steering column.

Here is a video, for a Malibu but it's pretty much the same.

Thanks for the video that helps. I noticed one of my wheel sensors wires was broken. Would that have any affect on the power steering causing it not to work?

For safety, I wouldn't think they would take away power steering for a broken wheel speed sensor but never know since a broken wheel speed sensor or wire will disable ABS, Traction control and Electronic stability control.

There was a special coverage for the EPS added. It was for 10 years or 150,000 miles.

6:55 in this Alternator change video shows the alternator plug wires go in to a larger harness.
