2012 Touareg : Location of brake controller wire at rear of vehicle

I have a 2012 Touareg with a v6 gas engine.
I am installing the trailer hitch and the wiring and a brake controller.
I found the wiring harness plug for the brake controller up under the dash, but where is the other end of the brake control wire at the rear?
My car did not have a tow hitch on it when I got it.
I'm thinking it might be located at the rear quarter panel in the back of the vehicle on the passenger side , where you access the passenger side tail light.

Anyone know ?

Thanks,
Kevin Rea

P I found the other end of the trailer wire for the brake controller. Here's are some pics.
It is located on the interior rear quarter panel there is a green plug there without anything attached to it...
