    mines run from the battery through under the windscreen then under door sill through to under the carpet under the back seats and out into the boot.

    Mine is the same. My cable runs from the battery, under the little lip on the top of the wing, to the grommet near the pollen filter. Down through the glove box. Under and along the plastic trim between the carpet and door. Upto the rear seats and through to the boot. It's not a hard job but it's time consuming. Results are great tho.
