Where can I run a wire through the firewall
Hello, I have a 2008 Jeep Compass, I need to run a wire through the firewall, but I could find any place that is easy to reach. I need the detail location. would you guys help me? thank you!
Your probably going to have to drill through the firewall. If you don't have a unibit I would find a local stereo shop and ask them to drill it for you. We use to charge like 5-10 bucks to do it and they know exactly where to drill without hitting anything. Ask them to put a grommit in there while your at it.

hold on! depends what do you want it for? If you need it for a stereo wire or w/e...the gromet into the car is pretty much right where the drivers fender and door meet. Its kinda behind the rubber thing...you'll just have to poke a hole in it to get a wire thro it tho. It took me a while to find it but I did! lol... Hope this helps so you don't need to do any drilling!
The Necessary Evil
I would use this one that is on the firewall behind the drivers side strut. If you take a piece of 14 gauge wire and run it threw this grommet you should be able to reach up behind the dash and grab it. If you need to punch a hole in it, no problem, just seal it up with some silicone sealer when you're done.
The one that gramps pointed out is where we run the wires for lights/siren install on fleet vehicles. Just punch thru with something sharp, run as many wires as you need, then dab some waterproof black RTV on it when you're done.
Installing HID's in stock housings is bad. Here is why.

The Necessary Evil
That's why I suggested a piece of 14 ga wire. It's more flexible and doesn't get hung up. Now you'll have to stand on your head and reach up behind the dash and feel around to un-snag the hanger. It should come out to the left side right behind the instrument cluster.
