hmm... might be tough, you'll need to remove the kick panels at least but I think from memory the rubber grommets are quite high up and might be a bit tough....

Is there any way you can tie the new cables to the old ones and pull them through? or this there that crappy foam s**t that won't let you to that?

Just a quick fix that could work and save some time thats all.

remove the rubber grommit things and change to EA ones
they are twice as thick, and hence easy as pie to run cabling through :)
just take the kick panels off, you dont have to remove the dash at all.

Use some WD40 to moisten the rubber grommets...I havae had multiple runs of ~10-12 awg run through my EL doors for 3 way component splits (midbass running active too)...so it is possible...I used a BBQ skewer last time...but you just have to make sure you don't pierce the rubber. A bit of elbow grease and WD40 will see you succeed here.

Yep, no need to remove the dash - just remove the kickpanel and you can reach up and pull wires through from the footwells...again not too difficult...but sometimes like a blind man in an orgy...you just need to feel your way around :wink:

Good luck !

Cheers,
Steve
