Mein Auto: E65 735i
Trunk hydraulic oil and windshieldwiper reservoir

I own a near perfect E65, but there are two minor problems though. The first one is that the filters on the pumps for the windshield wipers fluid are probably clogged. I want to remove them so I removed the passenger side wheel and the inner panel only to find the dynamic drive parts and not the reservoir. All links on Google tell me it should be there, but it seems to be different for my car. Anyone know where BMW hides the reservoir on a vehicle with dynamic drive?

Second question is about my trunk. It opens only a small bit and doesn't raise all the way up. I think I need to top up the hydraulic oil. I just want to know which oil to use that I can actually buy. I seem to get results for AeroShell 41 or Mobil HBG but neither of these I can order anywhere, except in huge drums but I only need a small amount. Is there a way to get a small amount somewhere online or is there another brand th at I can use that is more widely available?
