RE: How to run wire thru fire wall on a G2

I got some PIAA 001 lamps (for $77 from manifestinc.com) and i was trying to install them this weekend. I went to legend tuner for direcions on how to find a hole in the fire wall, and they reccomended the hole to the right of the charcoal canister. When i tried sticking the wire in there i came out of te side of the door jamb. I looked at some of the forums but no help (what is a grommit?) I any of you experts could help me find a hole in the fire wall (i prefer not to make one.)

I have a 1995 sedan.

Please HELP

I looked under the dash of my car and i saw 2 quarter sized ruber things with foam on the back (i don't know if thats the "grommit") i removed both of them and all i found was a metal plate.

Greek,

After weeks of looking, trying to avoid the drill, I finally found the hole I needed. I, too, had the problem of my wire ending up behind the fender. I found the small grommet with a single wire coming though it today. It will be hard to explain, although maybe this picture can help. If you take your finger and feel behind this harness you will feel a single wire coming through a grommet. I used a straightened clothes hanger taped to the end of the 8 gage wire and worked it though the grommet right next ot the existing wire. This brought the wire into that area behind the fender. I fed enough wire through so that I could grab the wire and pull it out though the opening when the door was open. I then untaped it and put the clothes hanger down through the hole behind the charcoal canister. I fed the clothes hanger out so I could retape it, and pulled the hanger and wire out through into the engine bay! I am so happy I didn't have to drill!
