Mine was actually behind the drivers arm panel slightly below and behind the throttle lever assembly.

Thanks, is it pretty straight forward to remove the panel?

Yeah, just a little bit of a pain to get to everything.

Behind throttle panel on mine

The only trick that I remember about pulling that panel is that it has the three obvious screws along the top (get the billet ones that MI Corey makes to replace ).

But underneath and in the middle of the panel is a bolt with a nut. I needed to lay on the floor and reach under the panel with a small wrench (3/8 maybe??) to get the nut off the bolt in order to release the panel. I would always remove me seat to improve access. I placed a label underneath the panel that's labeled with the size and location to avoid trial and error in the future.

If you have problems shoot me a PM or message here.

Cheersm Steve.

Removing the panel was marginally difficult, but I spent a long time trying to get it back together. Getting that middle one on top back in took me forever. Definitely get the metal spacers from MI_Corey and install those while you have the panel off.

Here's what I posted a while back about removing that panel:
Remove the screw at the bottom. There is a stud with a nut on it towards the back of the panel that you should remove next. You cant see it from the outside. Then remove the three with exposed heads towards the top. Mine all had nylock nuts on them which made removal tough. You can access the front one from under the dash. The other two are much more difficult, with he center one being he worst. You have to be really careful to not tear the panel. There is a member here that had some spacers made and was selling them. I would get some of those and install them while you have the panel off. I used an open ended wrench attached to some vise grips to get the back of the center one.

There is an Allen head screw on the bottom of the throttle. Take it out, then unscrew the Phillips head on the throttle to remove the arm.

Mine also had a tiny black Phillips head screw at the bottom next to the seat that I had to use a stubby screw driver to get out but not sure if that was factory or something from the PO
