MS-20 mod wheel cable

So this MS-20 has a loose mod-wheel cable. taking off both side panels it isn't obvious to me where it should plug back in. Any help?

Well, I'm going from memory but I think the cable goes from the left mod wheel area and goes way over to the right somewhere, surely it should be easy enough to find the unused connector that it belongs to?

Most of the Molex connectors connect on the back of the circuit boards and are different sizes so should be easy to match if no others are unconnected.

Oh, just realised - you won't see s#@t from just taking off the side panels, take them off first then the rows of screws on the back (not the ones in the middle, a couple there hold on the transformer ;) ), then the whole top/back should lift off connected only by the cables, then tip it all upside down and there are the boards - much easier to work on, if a bit more work.

Yeah, I can see the boards but I can't see any connectors to plug it into I guess I will have to further dissassemble it as you suggested.
Thanks!
