Re: Firewall hole

I believe I remember reading that there is a hole behind the glovebox...I'll be finding out this weekend when I do the MDS light install.

Well I did the MDS light install and thought that there was a hold but apparently there was a plastic knob on the inside cabin on the mat which served no purpose. Ended up drilling a 1/4" hole there and putting in a grommet, which worked perfectly for my purposes!

That being said, there's already a hole in the firewall on the driver's side down low. There's already something going through it, but I was able to weasel my 4ga power wire through it when I installed my sub a while back...it just took me a while to remember it was there.
