Ok Im quarter way through doing my lamps. I need to know on the fronts, how the f**k do I get the wire through that rubber conduct thing and where the f**k does it come out. I ahve spent 20mins under the glovebox looking for it, feed 150cm of wire through and got no idea where it comes out from. Help please!

Ok done the passenger front one, turns out between the metal and the inside there is a 4-5mm gap which I didnt account for. Wire was just sitting down there, had to remove kick panel to gain access.

I use curtain wire for getting cables through those sorts of places. U know the plastic covered wire the old curtains were hung on with a eye piece screwed in . Works a treat
