From the drivers footwell, remove the centre trim panel and look up and towards the bulkhead, you will see its connector and wiring in the least accessible place you can think of.

For some reason the Haynes Destruction manual also states you should remove the passenger right-hand trim panel (presumably the one covering the pollen filter).

 

Really can't see why you'd need to remove this as access is gained, as you quite rightly said, from the drivers' centre trim panel.

All documentation is usually written describing locations as they are viewed sitting in the car facing forward, so the drivers side panel would be the right hand side one.

The pollen filter side would be the left hand.

If you could take some pics and post up that would be great because the ones in the Haynes manual are, well, not very good :)

I did one of these for afriend a few weeks ago...unfortunately my pictures didn't come out so well

It's quite awkward to get at.

In the drivers footwell, up from the clutch pedal top and in to the centre of the car, it's almost level with it. It will have a large plug on it and should be secured with 2 torx screws. I found using a short extension linkedto a UJ and a long extension meant that I could just nicely reach the screws.

Some of the positions I got into to reach were quite amusing...at one point I was head down in the footwell with my feet out the passenger window!
