ZR 160 Facelift radio aerial lead?

I'm trying to sort out a replacement radio for my ZR160 that was recently bought without a radio in it. I've got 2 x ISO plugs for the power and speaker connections hanging out of the dash so that part's easy, I think, but I can't find the aerial lead!
I've poked about under the dash but can find no trace of it. The lead obviously comes down an A-pillar from the roof mounted aerial and across to the radio position but which side does it come down? Knowing this may help me to find it!
Also has anyone a link to a wiring diagram for the car's ISO plugs?
Can any one help? Ta.

Coaxial cable from aerial is coming down feom LH side 'A' post. Since it coming in front of heater blower, if you remove glove box you should be able to see coaxial cable which is clipped with two clips to heater/blower assembly.

Thanks, I had the glove box out already (mainly because the previous owner had lost a hinge screw!) but couldn't see any coax cable at all.
I do have aircon taking up most of the space behind the GB, is the coax route different perhaps? Looks like I'll have to take out the GB again...

It should come down the left hand pillar, and then routed across the fan/air ducting behind the dash moulding, slightly higher than the glovebox aperture. There is a moulded clip on the air duct housing above the end of the glovebox nearest the centre consol where the coax is usually clipped.

If you get your head under the glovebox and look up behind the glovebox moulding you should be able to see it without removing the glovebox itself.
