    Guys,

    Might be being thick here, but I want to route my mic cable along the red line I've drawn in the pciture. I can tuck the cable neatly under the rubber channel by the window, but how or where do I tuck the cable around the pillar and up along the window screen??

    The a pillar trim just clicks off mate. Or you can tuck it behind the edge of you don't want to take it off

    On my previous S3, i fitted a SE Bluetooth kit. I mounted the mic in the oem position in the central light cluster.

    Having removed the central light, and "fished" the cable over the the roof lining and down the drivers pillar, (without removing it, I managed to tuc it in with a credit card)

    You don't need to prise off the trim, just pull the door rubber back and slide it behind the trim that way, much less hassle. The door rubber comes off so easily and just pushes back on - don't bother pulling trim off unless you really have to.

    I did this to install my Parrot HF and it was the same on my 8P S3 too.
