Is it located properly and are the bolts present holding it to the plastic housing by battery? Is the plastic housing all clipped in place and secure?

Not sure about mark 1 but my mark 2 it kind of just clips on to battery tray I think and then clips to the bit at front by slam panel. Mine was broken by the front so I drilled and cable tied together.

It's easier to access with battery out.
