    i found there was a good earth point just below the light cluster. i had to remove the plastic trim that GSI3.2 was referring to, i also removed the floor panel and the boot trim where the first aid kit should be kept. once i removed all of that i found there was a bolt with 2 earths already connected, i think its a 10mm bolt.

    Good Luck!

    It's actually stud welded to the rear panel of the car..

    you need to remove the black plastic panel that fits around the boot catch and stretches across the back of the car.. it just pops off by pulling forward, then up..

    then you will see some brown and white leads connected to ring terminals, being clamped down by 10mm nuts.. this is the factory earthing points for the back of the car..

    Got my towbar wired into mine..
