you dont have a hose you have a schrade valve right between the taillights, and by the trunk latch

If the hose is missing, make one. With a clamp or screw on fitting on each end. Turn it on, and have a friend press the center of the schrader valve. Does the pump under the hood run?

uhhh dont think the lumbar runs off of the air compressor. when it does work, sounds kind of like a crest spinbrush. best way i can think to describe it

I turned mine on and then I just pushed in on the center of the valve in the trunk. if you hear air,it works.
