Yeah,what he said,right side on 02 models and and mounted in a foam holder on the side of the rear subframe. You can see it between the subfame and the tail if you take the seat off.

So I need to take front and rear seats off, then it should be visible?

You can take the front seat off and it will be visible. Easiest way to deal with the situation is to remove both seats and the tail section. Then everything you need to get at is right out in the open.

Mine is,but I have an undertail. Just take your time,it ain't rocket science
I do suggest that if you are going to do your own work that you search eBay of go to the dealer and drop the $$$ for a factory service manual.
Its pricey,but in the end it has the answers you need and can save you alot of grief.
I have a FACTORY manual for EVERY vehicle I own. Beats paying $85.00 an hour to some fresh outta school tech at the dealer!

You don't have to take the tail section off (I didn't), but everything will be plain-sight if you do. Once you take the seats off, you should see two connectors stuck in a foam 'holder'. I believe it's the smaller one, with 3 wires coming in and 3 going out.

Label the wires with tape or something that won't come off when in contact with oil, this way you'll know which wires to solder together.

good luck!

Yep,3 YELLOW wires. Connector is round and one of the wires will have a white with red stripe wire coming off of it. shane661 has stated earlier in this thread that all the wires in this connection are 3 phase AC and that how they end up connected doesn't matter. I am unfamiliar with the physics of 3 phase AC,so I can neither disprove or endorse this statement.
When I did mine,I hooked everything up the way the factory did. Do what you feel is best.
Inside the socket,there are 3 blades and sockets. 2 are side by side and arranged in the same direction,one is positioned 90 degrees to that.
In my situation,that single blade and socket were welded together. Coincidently,that is the same wire that the white and red striped wire is connected to. This wire is the trigger wire for the seconday headlight relay that likes to go up in smoke.
Have fun!

Re: stator connector and no headligths fix with pics...

after looking at said pic... on left side or upper part of connector there seems to be a 4th black wire not just the three yellows...

Voz,
The black wire you see is on the wiring for the other connector. The wires you see with the white shrink wrap used to be in the connector that gives the problem and the pic you show is after the repair is completed. The connector that is being removed looks just like the one in your pic.
Hope that removes any confusion.
