Wiring issue
#1
I can see there is a vacant terminal to attach a positive wire to but I cannot find a way to pass the wire through to the cab.  Has anyone done this?

Use the grommet through which the bonnet release cable passes. You will have to puncture that grommet. There are no ready made routes.

When our Romahome was built they broght the cables from the engine into the cab using a cable gland fitted to the plate that covers up the hole for the LHD steering column. I have just fitted anothe next to it.

This seems like a good route as it must be near(ish) to the battery.

The plate - is it bolted and did they drill a hole in it.

I wasted a few hours trying to find a hole where the clutch pipe/cable would have gone through.

The plate is riveted in place and they just drilled a hole in it. They cut a hole in the carpet but I pulled it back to do the second one.

John Bilko - I didn't realise you were prepared to drill a hole...instead looking for an existing route. There are of course many places if you are just going to drill a hole and put a gland in.

I tried to find it this morning and no luck. I tried lifting the carpet a bit but there is a hard panel preventing me.  I was hoping to just remove the plate.  Can you recall where it is precisely for me please?

I do not want to drill I must confess.  I tried going with the bonnet cable and got nowhere. Hopeless I am. lol

Not at all mate, it isn't always easy to see these things - that engine bay is pretty congested. Imagine where the steering shaft would go through if you were sitting in the passenger seat - maybe that would point you to the right area. On the bonnet cable thing, it leads from the latch on the passenger door frame, and up the wall behind the glovebox then out to the wing, and round to the bonnet latch - maybe you can follow that back. You would have to puncture the rubber grommet to get a wire through,

I agree that the engine bay is not only jam packed but a lot of it is under the dash panel.  I had a Rav4 (I think it was) and I ran a wire along the chassis and up under the driver's seat!

As far as the steering shaft would be, I can't lift the carpet enough to find the plate.

I had tracked the B'ingo's bonnet release as far as the footwell firewall area at the back of the glove box.  It was really easy to find the grommet and I pulled it towards me to see the hole it sits in but I could not get my coat hanger wire any farther forward. After prodding (with some force) and poking for about 20 minutes I gave it up. lol

I suppose I need to crawl under the vehicle and see if there is a hole plug somewhere around where the handbrake cable enters - I am getting desperate, can you tell??
