    IS that left when looking from the front or the back of the car?
    There is a spare grommet on the passenger side behind the pollen filter

    there is a major gromet going through the bulkhead on the left side. it has lots in it, but its easy to get other stuff through.

    you need to remove the airbox and the glove box, and push a straighened wire coathanger through gently from the engine side - it comes out just under the aircon fan in the passenger well - you can tape cables to the coathanger and pull them through - i just did it to pull through a heavy gauge power cable for an andymac stealth sub - whole job took 20 minutes from start to finish

    I know about the one on the right hand side under the air box and the spare one near the pollen filter.

    I need one on the left hand side at the front. As I am trying to plumb in my boost gauge and the piping is only just long enough.

    Any helpers?

    Just by the pollen filter is a rubber plug. I have removed this removed the centre, filled it with wires, replaced the gromet and works a treat. Never have any water on the cabin (and weve had rnough of it recently havent we!!!)

    Remove the wipers and drip tray. On the left you will see a plastic box.
    Open the box and you will see a big opening with wire to the fuse box.

    There is loadsa space here to get stuff through into the car.

    Yeah the drivers side.

    How much of a pain? As I've not looked into it.

    Also is there much space available as I've got to get a pipe with a 12mm bolt on end through.

    You're welcome.

    After you have removed the wipers and cover, you'll see how it comes apart. Its kinda obvious once your in there.

    You can get to the stuff from inside if you remove the fuse box cover and then undo the screws and pull out the fuse box under the dash side panel (which just pulls off).

    You might want to remove the lower dash panel to see a bit better too.

    Oh, BTW, completely off topic. Did you see the photoshop pics I did for you on your other thread??
