What do you want to run?

there is always a grommet,,,

if you didn't "get" in there, you didn't look hard enough.

You may have to remove panels under your dash to get at grommets.

If all else fails then You'll have to drill a hole, but,, get a grommet first,, then drill a hole to that grommet!

Sorry I had to pay a pro to drill and it was STILL a major PITA to get the wire into the engine compartment, this simple job usually takes an huor or so this time it was 3+. All the penetrations are modular and high into the dash area. No nice grommets in convienient places like in other Fords, I would like to hear from the pros who know more than I do on this one too
