    On the passenger side by the pollen filter you will see a rubber grommet. Just push a coat hanger through it to make a hole and you can push the cable through.

    You may find removing the 8 torx bolts for the glovebox easier so you can find the cable. Under the bonnet you will see some trunking to run the cable in to the battery but I think you need to remove the air filter box to get to it properly.

    The cable comes through behind the glovebox.
    You'll need to remove the glovebox and then it's easy.
    The pollen filter is under the passenger side wiper, near the front passenger wing.
