Mine was located on the left side of the flange between the radiator and the inner body, on the front side. Coming to grips with the high technical nature of the Plush2 after working on the S2.

If you have any doubt, just ring them. If the parts guys can't advise, they are normally quite happy to get somebody from the workshop. I have done this a couple of times & had my questions answered very quickly & clearly..
