 From memory, it's on the left (driver's) side. You'll need to pull  
the rubber weather seal from the back edge of the roof, and the trim  
down the side of the rear window, to expose the wires on both sides of  
the accordion boot at the hinge. You'll only need to pop the accordion  
boot at the ends, to pull new wires thru, you won't need to split or  
slice it. It's not all that hard, and all the electrical stuff in the  
hatch will thank you.
