    Thanks again Ade.

    I have studied the underside of my type 2. but can not find any remains on the floor panel after a bracket for the switch. All the wiring clips are there. And there is perhaps marks after a bracket on the rear left side underneath the frame for a switch bracket. The holes for the junction box is on the same place as your picture Ade, and there has been holes in the rear cross member for the connector. I would really like some info about the switch on the type 2 trailers. I really have no reliable info for where it has been placed.

    Cheers
