I think you lost me there: the ELC compressor _is_ the compressor for the air pump. There'* an air line running to the back of the car. One branch feeds the rear air shocks on demand; the other branch goes to the accessory air valve outlet in your trunk. Solenoid valves of some sort take care of routing air to the right place.

Can't answer that one. Exactly what year of Bonneville are you referring to? The ELC uses an air pump to regulate the ride height at the back. That pump is under the hood, on the left (driver'*-side) wheel well. You should also have the air valve and On/Off pushbutton switch panel in your trunk. Yours has the ELC and air pump but no trunk hardware?
