Where's the vacuum resevoir on a 1982 300cdt?

Can't find the line that goes to the vacuum resevoir, hence can't find the vacuum resevoir to check for vacuum...I understand the vacuum resevoir is in a different place in the coupes...any suggestions please??? I don't see the line going through the fire wire...supposed to be black yes?

Thanks

I believe the reservior line is brown. Usually there is a check valve with a three way connector which has a yellow line that goes to the door locks and a brown line that goes to the reservior. It isn't under the rear window deck in the trunk.

I've read the connection to the reservoir is the most likely spot for a leak.
At the very bottom right of the pic, it says to use non-hardening silicone on the inside of the grommet, and outside of the hard vac line, being careful not to clog.
