Trouble locating alarm siren in w203

I have a 2004 w203 estate.

My remote locking and radio have just stopped working and fuse 8 blows every time I try to replace the fuse.

After a bit of searching on here it seems that this could be caused by a shorted alarm siren (which would definitely be preferable to a shorted aerial amplifier!).

The threads I found describe the location of the alarm siren as being under the wheel arch lining at the rear of the NS wheel arch. I have checked behind all the lining and can't find it for the life me! :confused:

Does anyone have a photo of the location or any other ideas? I've never actually heard my alarm go off, so I'm wondering whether there was ever one installed.

Thanks

It is under a plastic cover, it should be on the near side but maybe on the off side, its right at the top

Ah! Thanks for the quick replies guys :)

After looking at that picture Simon, it would appear that my laziness has been the cause of me not finding the siren; I undid all the hex screws and pulled the panels down, leaving the push pins in place - which is why I couldn't see it, I didn't think it would be that far down.

Much appreciated. Will get back in about it in the morning and disconnect the alarm.
