You may have a multi plug for the trailer wiring by the rear cross member RHS. It should be a grey connector with a orange inside. If you do not have that then you can get the wires from the rear connection at the sides by the rear door or gate. If you have speakers behind the grill box. Since you have yellow and red rear lights you will have to have a converter to work correctly with the solid color trailer lights.

On my 97 I ended up cutting off the OEM plug and splicing in a standard circular deal with an extension down to the receiver area. Then bought a converter to the standard 4 pin for most light trailers (walmart, pretty inexpensive).

The OEM Rover plug was really expensive to find the right mate.
