Default Handbrake Switch! Where is it?

Hi guys,

Does anyone have a clue on how to replace "Handbrake switch"? That's how the WIS describe it. It's the sensor which switch on the light, on the dashboard when you pull the handbrake. It's not working.
Bulb and fuse are okay, so it must be sensor fault. But have no idea where to look for it. I have dismantled central console, but don't know what next.

HELP PLEASE!
