Wiring through firewall

Post by Enjoy » Sun Apr 21, 2019 10:02 am

Hi

Is there a place where I can root a wire from engine compartment to inside the vehicle?

I've installed a 360 camera system, but could not find a way to do this. I had to get creative instead.

There must be a loom running through the firewall between engine compartment and near to where the BCM is - there is one option. The next is where the bonnet release cable passes through the firewall. Last option is to find a convenient place away from other components and drill a new hole, protecting the new cable with a rubber grommet.

This hose runs in the loom coming from the engine bay into the passenger compartment. Not a good choice in my opinion considering the hose can split and spray water all over the body control module.

I need to run one 0.35mm cable :-) Do you have photo of the holes in to the cabin?
