    Easiest Accessible Firewall from the driver side?

    I just got my fog lights, but the one thing that is REALLY bothering me is where I'm supposed to put the wires through from under the driver side to the fogs.

    PICTURES would be really helpful here. Thanks. Also what size screw would I need to install the fogs themselves? Because the ones that came with the fogs don't even bloody fit!

    Umm .5mm the bolts are I think?? From memory as for the cable ill get a picture tomorrow but top left corner in the engine bay remove the fuse box and under it is a hole that goes to straight above the fuse box in the car if need be cut a small hole in the rubber to fit the cable through but make sure to cover it back up.

    You should be able to just feed it through and bam problem solved. There may be other options but I did mine this way.

    Ye that's where I was also planning to run my wires through, but I have a few questions first.

    1. Is it just three screws to remove the fuse box? Or are there more?
    2. Should I run the cables from the outside to the inside? Or other way round?
    3. How in the hell am I supposed to get my hand to that point inside the car? Isn't it like behind the wire attached to the accelerator or something?

    1. There is only 1 screw from memory, the back is not held by screws.

    2.run from outside in. It is a lot!! Easier

    3. Yes it is and I'm 6 foot 5 and have massive hands so if I can do it anyone can. Helpful hint is to attach a piece of wire to the cable your putting through so you have something easier to pull on.

    Alright. Seems pretty straight forward. I shall continue on this project either tomorrow or the day after. Now that you've explained it sounds easy enough Really do appreciate your help mate

    Behind the fuze box is the easiest way to get through the firewall on the drivers side. Once the retaining bolt is undone be carefull with the two clips at the back of the
    box and it lifts straight off. Just to let you know, if you are installing driving lights on a BB6 there is a wire pre run from the factory. It starts inside the drivers side footwell fwd of the fusebox and exits just behind the drivers side indicator. I used it when I put driving lights on my Prelude. Located it after reading a "fog light install" thread, found after a google search.
