2008 Canadian LR2 SE block heater freeze plug location?

I am attempting to install a block heater in a 2008 LR2 SE. This is the item I am attempting to install:
Zerostart 310-0003 Engine Block Heater, 1" npt freeze plug bore

Purchased from Amazon. My difficulty is locating the/a freeze plug location to install this. I removed the engine undershield but I still can't see a freeze/frost plug location? Anyone done this and can point me to the right area of the engine block?
I also checked with my local Land Rover parts guy and he was not very knowledgeable with this procedure. I have also searched on google, youtube and this and one other forum but have been unsuccessful at this point.

For Canada i can guess it's 3.2 petrol which means it's the selected part 6026 in this link http://www.allbrit.de/epc.cfm?PAGE=3...PRACHE=EN#6026 so it seems is at 10 o'clock from the rear crankshaft seal though for Fl2 it seems there is a dedicated kit LR008792 https://workshop-manuals.com/landrov...(canada_only)/ though for 0.6 hours labour time better pay to a LR service to fit it

Thank you Fery! This is extremely helpful, exactly what I needed!
Would it be ok if I updated my thread at landroverforums.com with your link and giving credit to you at this site? Thanks.
