4 screws at the top of the control panel get removed and it is right there. Toe remove the part simply pry up the locking tab a hair and twist that dude. You may not need to replace the part. just blow out the air line to the tub and retry;

Check the pressure switch hose at the tub, I have seen a lot of them plug up.(30+) Even in the air dome,remove the hose at the switch and blow it out. If that works try some water in the hose and blow it out again.
