Default Help Replacing ABS Sensor!

I need to replace my right rear ABS sensor / wheel speed sensor. I've seen videos on where the actual sensor is located behind the brake disk, but where does the wiring lead to? I found one other thread that stated the wiring harness was underneath the rear seat bench but the videos I've seen of people removing their rear seats didn't show any wiring harness!

I also read that apparently when you remove the rear bench the clips that hold it down need to be replaced with new ones? Is that true?

I need to get this done in the next few days, so any help is greatly appreciated!

I think the clips people talk about are the seat clips. If you do not REALLY press HARD on front of seat towards trunk and take care pulling up on the seat, they tend to break. I've remove my seat 6 times now and never broken one and they clip back just fine. Reinstallation is a p.i.t.a. to push seat back correctly to get the little "j" hooks in the middle of the seat to clip back in. Taking it out the first time, I damn near damaged the seat before bracing myself on back of front seat, pushing with all my might on the front of the rear seat to get them to release. Obviously, not knowing they were there in the first place.
