Default 1980 Corvette LH courtesy light mounting question

I am finishing up the interior of my 1980 after replacing the carpet dash and seats last winter and I cant for the life of me see how the left hand courtesy light mounts. It's the light under the dash near the kick panel. The right hand one has a bracket pop riveted to the kick panel. The left has none and when I look up for a replacement bracket, they all state right hand bracket. Please advise how this left one mounts, a photo would be helpful if possible, The left and right housings are the same, so failing everything else I could make a bracket for it, but I'd rather do it right. Thanks GIL

The foam dash pad has 2 slots molded into it for the fingers on the light to push in. It's next to the headlight switch. You'll have to reach up under the dash. You'll have to remove the AC duct that goes under the steering column to get better access.
