One way to see the cells is to get the car on a lift & trace the hydraulic lines - the spheres themselves are inside the car, though, so all you'll do is locate their hydro connection points. Inside the car, you'll need to remove the panel between the folding, rearmost seat back, and the back seat (middle row). With that panel removed, the spheres are right there (I replaced mine about a month ago). Essentially, the cells are inline with the shocks, but more inboard/towards the center of the car.
I'm having trouble finding the panel. There does not appear to be an access section in the carpet between third row pop up seat and back seat. Do I have to pull the carpet up? Maybe I need to fold the rear (middle) seats down, then have access to the panel?
