Z3 Trunk (Boot) light switch

Does anyone know if there is a switch for the trunk (boot) light and if so, where it is?
The trunk (boot) light is not lit and I am wondering if it's either the switch or a broken wire in the umbilical.
Cheers
Duncan

Check your bulb and the wire bundle by your driver's side trunk hinge for frayed wires

Thank you for the photo; that was perfect! I've now diagnosed the fault to a broken wire in the umbilical. Many thanks
