    Hiding the wires behind the glovebox

    While I'm still waiting for the car to arrive I don't want trailing wires running over the dashboard. Has anyone worked out how the glovebox comes out and is there an easy ignition 12v I can tap into?

    Yes I have a Road Angel and a cradle for the iPhone so I can see tomtom and texts etc. on the civic they trail and I've lived with it but want it all hidden away like it was on the Golf... I remember on the Golf there was a hidden screw that took ages to find.

    Thanks, did you hardware the power adaptor or just plug it in at the front? if I can find a switched 12v I'll post where it is and how to access it.
