Where are heated seat switches located?

I see factory switches for heated seats sold on ebay but I can't figure out where Ford mounted them. Are they on seat bezel, console or dash somewhere? Is the mounting point unique for the switch or is a hole simply drilled in the plastic? I can't find a pic anywhere.

I'm asking for a 2007 car which I assume would be same as '00-'07 ST or SVT. thanks

On the floor console on either side of and just behind the shifter.

Only a few of the foci came with heated seats, so if you cant see the buttons, your foci probably didnt come with them installed.

Did the system have adjustable temp dials in addition to switches? I see some references to levels 1 thru 5. If so, where were these dials mounted? Thanks

The one thru five dial is in the MKIII focus. My brothers 06 ST was just an on/off switch.

Maybe it'd make sense to use one aftermarket button on the left for a drivers seat heater element. My daughter doesn't need a passenger heater.

What is the lower right button...is that for an ejection seat?
