Default 2001, manual locks, hatch open warning on (where is sensor?)

Title pretty much says it.
Manual locks, 2001 cruiser need to adjust sensor that
tells warning "hatch open".
Looked around hatch sides, top, bottom and no
push button found.
How do they sense it is open.
Any pictures would help.

From my service manual, the "liftgate ajar switch" is is on the liftgate latch inside the hatch at the center. The switch appears to work by sensing the position of the latch mechanism.

I had posted in an earlier thread pictures of how the cover is removed:
Rear Wiper Grommet?

My wife's old van had switches similar to this. The switch stuck and that caused the light on the dash to remain lit. I cleaned and lubricated it and that fixed the problem. My PT never had this problem.
