    04 Monte Carlo wheres best to run wires?

    Just got my new ride and need to throw a system in it. Got the wires to run an amp but Im not familiar with taking apart trim panels and ish on a monte carlo. I have the 2 door coupe with folding rear seats.

    Looking for someone who knows how to install in 00-05 Monte Carlos.

    So my big problem is where I should run wires to reach the trunk? Getting from battery to rear seats I pretty much got covered. But from there on I'm not sure where to go.

    Appreciate the help. Thanks

    Re: 04 Monte Carlo wheres best to run wires?

    no idea how to run them wires. im sure the back seats pop off though. look at that chiltons or hanes manual and see if it says. then just run the wires and put the seats back in. or just try to pull up a corner of the seats and get it through.

    goodluck, ill come check it when im off work. see u at annies

    Re: 04 Monte Carlo wheres best to run wires?

    on my grand prix once i ran it through the firewall, down the door sills. behind the trim panel under the window for the rear seats, than under the bottom of the seat then from there fished it behind the seat to the trunk. getting it through the firewall should be the hard part running it to the trunk was easy compared to getting it through the fire wall. the panels were held in by clips i just had to pull really hard on them.

    on the passenger side, there was a grommet where the main engine harness went through. its about where you passenger feet would sit.
