    I just ran mine into the boot through the hole the number plate lamp wiring goes through, then ran the wires down the side of the car under the sill trim.

    Sorry Dan, didnt explain very well there, what I mean is, when running the cables from HU to rear of car under all the plasic trims, how hard is it to run them into the boot. I know the other grommet you mean.

    Hi Clive , on the passengers side if you remove the rear seat bolster you will see the route the loom takes , as Dan said the plastic trim that runs the length of the car unclips , and the behind the glove box. Any problems bell me and i'll talk you through it.
