    My partner and I have got ours running under the trim along the passenger side of the vehicle. Along the rear of the glove box, down the side door plastic trim then all the way along to the back ok the rear seats. It's under the seat and we used the seat mount bolt as an earth. Hope this helps.

    I've just taken the glovebox out and I don't see a gromet. Where do you run the power cable through on 2005 Audi A3? Helpp

    Ok if anyone else is stuck on this and also have a 2005 Audi A3, the grommet is on the passenger side, near the top as pictures here:
