    Hi Norm if yours is based on the Ducto then it should be where Mel has said but if not I know a man who as the same vehicle @Ber90, problem is I think is away on holiday at the moment so might not have any wifi.

    Sorry I cannot be of more help.

    It's where Mitzimad said it is. In your case you have to put your inside inside the left storage container (the big one you store books in etc) and feel your way forward and up until you can feel it. You cannot see at all.

    Thanks Guys. I'll go and have another feel! It's based on the Fiat so should be easy to find but it has me stumped.

    Hi
    I have an Aviano and it is more or less in the same position as shown in A class knaus. To the left of air vent above storage space on side not facing you.

    Thanks all.
    Found it eventually. It's in a pocket up side of facia on left hand side. Can't be seen only felt and difficult to operate ! Got there in the end !

    As @GJH will tell you and @ShiftZZ you will definitely Never need it with such supreme example of engineering . The Rapido openener is on the middle of the steering wheel.
