Dont know if youve sorted this yet so hear go,s

if you face your engine bay and look at the right hand side in the top right corner there is some plastic trim that can be removed,,,,,(this hides the wiper motors)
just remove the black plastic plug things, once this has been removed there is the fire wall, there is a gromit in that area, you will need a long then screw driver, and some tape, secure the cable to the end of the screw driver, you will need to remove your glove box before you do this, push the driver through the gromit along with the cable taped to the diver, get a mate to feel for it and then you should be able to pull it through

another way is

at the back to the left behind the engine you will see the gromits for the clutch / break/ and go fast pedel, you can use one of them but be aware, i had a power cable melt doing that so i brought a braided hose and fed the cable through that to protect it from the heat

If you are running cables to the rear boot area it is best if you remove the front seats and the rear base bit, you will then be able to lift the carpit up and you will be faced with the floor lining, cut groves out of the lining to lay the cables down and in to the boot

Earth point: Use the seat belt point on the back seats, make sure you scrap any paint away to get a good contact

Hope this helps

by the way, havent been on hear for a while so hello every one, will start looking and do a litle bit more posting from now on
