    Follow this guide http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15590

    The guide is for installing amp wiring but the same gromit can be used to get what you need through into the cabin

    There is a better place than the one in the how 2. If you pull out your glovebox you will see a huge grommet will most of the loom going through, on the engine site it comes out under the scuttle.

    I would suggest that if you dont much about cars, then get someone else to help you fit the wire as the last thing you want is to damage a grommet and end up with water leaking into your wiring....

    What are you trying to run the wire for?
