Where is the power steering Reservoir on 2009 elantra GLS

I can not find it on this 2009 Elantra GLS. I= HAD A 2002 ELANTRA AND THE RESERVOIR was located on the pasengers side quarter panel interior. For the life of me I can not find this reservoir on my son's 2009 GLS. Does anyone know if it even has one and where is it located. Thanks for your help.

alanb is an unknown quantity at this point
The HD Elantra does not have a conventional engine belt driven hydraulic power steering pump, so there is no reservoir. Instead it uses an electric steering assist system. Here is how it is described in the shop manual on hmaservice.com:
EPS (Electric power steering, Column assist type) system uses an electric motor to assist the steering force and it is an engine operation independent steering system.
EPS control module controls the motor operation according to information received from the each sensor and CAN (Controller Area Network), resulting in a more precise and timely control of steering assist than conventional engine-driven hydraulic systems.

Components (Steering Angle Sensor, Torque Sensor, Fail-safe relay, etc.) of the EPS system are located inside the steering column & EPS unit assembly and the steering column & EPS unit assembly must not be disassemble to inspect or replace them.
