2012 Focus, how/where to pass wires through firewall?
 
Hey guys,

Need to pass a couple of wires from the engine bay to the cabin/footwell. Are there any holes we can use?

FocusBastard 11-14-2012 10:16 PM

Hey thanks for all the help guys!

Found what I was looking for.

Howto:

Remove glove box
- remove fuse panel cover under glove box (pull off the retainers)
- Open glove box, remove torx screws in the front on the top panel
- crawl under glove box, remove two more torx screws
- All torx screws are black oxide, hard to spot but look for em

upper right of fuse panel.... slits in jute padding
Rip the jute padding open to expose...
wiring harness coming in through a guge rubber grommet

take sharp tip knife and stab the rubber grommet like this \
remove knife and stab same point, like that /
makes a nice X

poke wire through x

Done.

Hopefully this helps some 2012 owners.

This helped very much I would just add that you have to remove the side panel of the glove box to remove another hidden torx screw and then I just reached inside the glove box and grabbed it by the opening through the top and pulled towards myself....it took forever to figure it was kept in place by those pop things haha or whatever they are called. but seriously thanks a lot. that opening is perfect. I believe I'll either cut it like you said or just push it to the side for the power wire

I just purchased a subwoofer and amp sono door new door speakers or amp for those....does it sound decent with just upgrading the amp? I have been worrying so much about that.

Yeah, I love the way mine sounds. And the bass doesn't overpower the music, but still has a nice kick to it.
