Auxiliary cable fishing help??

First off, sorry if I posted in the wrong place or whatever, I'm new to this site. I just got my 2012 focus SE Sedan and I realized that the AUX jack is in the glove box. I don't understand how that benefits the driver but whatever. My question is does anyone know how or have any tricks on fishing the cable (I bought a 7 ft one) to the drivers side out from the bottom panel? I'm sure it can be done but I can't seem to find videos or anything. Any tips or advice is helpful! Thanks

I ran a six foot male to female aux cable from inside the glove box to the bottom of the glove compartment door (there is plenty of space so it doesn't pinch the cable). The I ran the cable under the right side of the console to the back of the console, using black duct tape to hold it in place. The female end of the cable now sits up on the right side of the console. It is not pretty but it works. It would not be hard to remove a console panel, drill a hole, and install a female jack.

Yeah I though about that, I just wasn't wanting to drill or anything. I have decided that I am just going to buy the aftermarket stereo kit out for the MK3 and put my own stereo in, hopefully it'll work. Thanks to both of you!
