brake pad sensor

I want to replace brake pad sensors. I took off tire and examined old sensor to find where the connector goes (Not the pad side, but the other side). The wire goes into body (under door) saw can't see where the connector is. How did you guy do this? Do I have to take out some trims to expose the connector?

Thanks.

I assume you mean the rear sensors.

You can get to it from underneath, right behind the RTAB

Why do you need to 'replace' the brake pad wear sensors?

Just unclip the hinged cover on the 5" long rectangular box (see picture below under the red arrow). Disregard the other circles in the picture.
The sensor cable now just unplugs.
