well the only place thru the fireway is dead center in the car. if you go in from the engine bay, its dead center, and when you feed a wire thru it, it will fall down right by the gas pedal. i did this with the switch wire for my PIAA lights. and then tucked it up and out of the way under the plastic of the center console thingy. and zip tied up everything else to keep it from moving and all nice n neat.

Default another question...

Hey thanx for the reply but i have another question, when you fed the wire through the firewall did you have to make any new holes? and also did you have to remove the cd player?

No using my spot from the other thread, that was the only hole and the rubber forms around the power wire. It is not necessary to remove the stereo to bring it through in the spot that I did. However you have to remove it to aess the remote turn on wire.

When I bought mine the dealership didn't have one with the sub. I have read that it is a piece but I have yet to experience the bone jarring bass myself.

What are you putting in?

Two screws, one in the door handle where it opens and one in the arm rest. The screws are behind little plastic covers. There is a notch in them that shows where to open them. Plastic Retainers that pop out all around the edge of the panel. You can pop off the panel by hand or by using a tool, I would reccommend the tool. Be careful and take your time on the wiring plugs that are on the front panels as they are a little "tight" and do not slide out easily even if you have correctly depressed the release clips.. The drivers door has two plugs, the front passenger and rear doors have one.
