How to get to plug for heated passenger backrest?

I have looked and could not find. How to get to plug for heated passenger backrest. I am putting on different heated backrest and wire is going into trunk area. My replacement backrest (OEM) has a short wire with plug. I just thought if someone has done this, it would be helpful.

Plug for heated backrest is behind left side rear speaker cover, IIRC.

There are two T20 torx screws holding the cover in place. Remove the screws then you will be able to hinge upward to remove cover.

Not being overly picky here, but it's not actually under the speaker, but the cover for the controls or plugs on the left side below the speaker. Two Torx 20 screws, one on the inside, one on the bottom. Then you can swing the cover up as if it is hinged. Just had this apart last Sunday in order to install a rack.
