    What ever you need to do in the engine compartment, forget it!

    If you can't even find the lever then your obviously incapable of checking anything under the bonnet. Get somebody else to do it lol

    under the dash on the drivers side - near your right knee - for right hand drive cars.

    The picture in the manual will presumably be for a left hand drive one - same as the diagrams for the fusebox, etc.

    Try under the dash on the right-hand or drivers side!. The manual shows a LHD car.
