2000 windstar intake control runner rods?

Hello, I just joined here today as i have a 2000 ford windstar and noticed ive been having misses and engine code came up.

P1518 intake control runner stuck open.

I have done tones of searching and reading and im at the point i need a bit of help.

So the one back rod on my intake control runner was laying down not connected anymore.
I then went out and bought the retainer clips for the rod but here is where i start having issues.

Where does the rod clip in the back of the modual?
I have been feeling back there and i see where the front rod connects in the back of the runner but cannot feel anywhere that the back rod would go.?

Been searching online for a picture of the back and cant find anything.

If someone has some clear information on where the hole would be located and or a picture of the back would be a bonus.

I really dont want to attempt to try and remove this thing as it looks a bit complicated lol.

Thank you all for the help in advance.

I have stuck my hand in the back of the module feeling around and cant feel a hole nor a bracket for the rod.

Thats the issue iam having.Was hoping for an actual picture or something on where the back rod connects.

All i found online was the module of the earlier windstars that use the 2 modules and the 2000's only of the 1 module with the 2 rods connecting to it.
