    2008 Taurus power lead from battery (HELP!!!)

    Been digging around on the firewall of this 08 Taurus all morning trying to find a place to run an amp power wire. I was hoping to go through a pre-existing grommet like the good ole days but I'm not finding anything. There's so much sound dampening material on both sides of the firewall I can't see anything. Any installers on here remember where to get through on the 08-09 Taurus?????

    Thanks Pop, saw that link the other day and it would work fine. I was just hoping to find a grommet I could slide it through without drilling a hole. Got everything installed this morning except for the power cable. I'm gonna head out to the garage and give it one last go before I breakout the drill. Got anxious and ran a jumper outside the vehicle to the amp and it sounds great!!!!!

    If you have a good place to run it under the car(most likely don't) I would do that. Should be a plug in the spare tire well so you don't have to drill a hole.

    Thanks. Amp is gonna sit under drivers seat. Just spent another 15 minutes searching for a way in and it looks like I might be able to get it through the hood release cable grommet. Unfortunately, there's almost no room to work on either side of the firewall. Still might have to breakout the drill.

    Got in through an unused grommet on the drivers side kick panel!!!! It was really hard to find cuz it's almost completely hidden by the drivers door wiring boot.
