Driver Side Firewall Access

Hey all,

In the final stages of running some wires into the engine bay from the cabin. I've seen a lot of posts about the grommets on the passenger side, but is there any kind of firewall access on the driver side to run some wires through to the engine bay?

Pics would be super helpful too!

Thanks!

Re: Driver Side Firewall Access

On my 2015 Overland I used a gromet that is next to the parking brake. It comes out under the brake booster so you can't see it from the engine side but if you tape your wire to a small metal rod of heavy coat hanger and then push it through a small hole you cut in it the rod and wire will be visible under the booster,

Forgot to add...disconnect thenegative battery termjnal before you mess around with the cardboard "barrier" above the brake pedal. The sensor for the knee air bag is mounted on the cardboard and you can set it off if you shock or trip the sensor.

I wound up going behind the glove box on the right side since it spit out right by the battery terminal.
