    Hi I wonder if anyone can help.

    I am ditching my standard Audi concert stereo and replacing it with my alpine head unit.

    My question is, is there a tidy way of running my iPod connection into the glove box so as it is all hidden. I have taken a look and there doesn't appear to be any grommets etc.

    Does it mean I have to cut a hole?

    Any help appreciated

    On mine, it comes out next to the glovebox light, when you take the light out you already have a hole to pop it through but the light won't go back in so i drilled a hole on the corner of the precut hole so the wire comes out next to it and the light sits back in flush.

    I had my glovebox out repairing the hinges and took this oppourtunity to cut a hole down the bottom right and slotted my ipod lead in that way. Tidy solution.

    I ran a cable up into the arm rest... Quite pleased with the result if I'm honest :happy:
