Factory CD Changer Cable enters Cabin where?

Recommended Posts

Hi there

I replaced my cd changer with a Solisto device to connect my ipod and memory sticks. The solisto is installed in the trunk where the CD Changer cable ends. I'd like to run a USB extension cable from there into the cabin. The CD changer cable does not seem to run to the upper grommet through the firewall that everybody is talking about here, it disappears inside the trunk behind the carpet. Does anyone know where it enters the cabin and the work effort needed?

To use the existing cable routing will caused you to break open a very well developed closed water tight system. It will be easier to route thru another grommet opening above the gas pedal. PM me for additional pictures and slides.

I removed all the carpet liners. Very straight forward and little or no effort and time.


I penetrated a grommet next to the existing one. Cut an X with a razor knife and then seal with chaulk before you put carpet back. Fasten with zip ties to existing wires to make it look nice.


Then remove the battery and tray it is attached to and run the cable in the moat and enter the cabin via the rubber grommet behind the battery on the driver's side.



The grommet opens into the cabin right above the gas pedal. Careful pushing things thru as you can also push the grommet thru. I think it is better to have a partner help you with this.


Put carpet back.
