Subject: <E36> Passing wire through firewall
I posted a question a while back about how to pass wires from the battery to
the interior of the car in a 95 318ti. I got a couple replies and thank those
who sent them, but I didn't use any of the info.
I did get on reply from someone who wanted me to post any useful info on this,
but I accidentally erased the message.
Here's how I got the wire through:
There is a factory grommet in the firewall on the passenger side just above the
edge of the carpet. It has a big spot in the middle for one big wire and a
number of spots around it for smaller wires. The center spot was unused as
well as a number of the smaller ones.
This can be easily accessed from the interior by removing the panel under the
dash and from under the hood by removing the battery and the battery box and it
will be right in front of your face.
I hope this helps someone.
