Great guide with wonderful pictures, but you solved a completely different problem. That isn’t a water pump. It’s a check valve. You cannot access the pumps without doing a fairly intensive teardown.

Also some notes.

- You don’t need to remove the handle to remove the lid casing. Just push straight back slightly to push the clips out of their holders, pull up to get the clips over them so they don’t realign, and pull forward through the open handle to remove it.

- Most of the time, the check valve does not need to be replaced outright. You can blow/suck hard through the proper end to try to clear it and that usually works. If it’s got buildup, sucking a little bit of vinegar through it (like it was a short, fat straw) and leaving it to sit in there for a while can clear that right up. Just remember to flush it through with plenty of water after or your coffee will taste awful.
