    On the underside of the dashboard, look directly below the headlight switch, you need to bend down to see it, it should be blue I think?

    or possibly underneath the ashtray: only saying this cos even though mine is as above, she still has a cut out and blanking plate for it underneath the ashtray :-S (must be a mk4 golf throwback!)

    Below ashtray is only for prefacelift cars upto 1999.

    I know, because I have 2 prefacelifts, one is 1999, the other is 2000, and they are both in different positions.
