Footwell LED Rear

Currently , in planning to retrofit the rear footwell LED lights.
It seems I have to run the wire from the front dashboard to the underside of the seats (passenger and driver), and it should be done sideways along the sill. So in order to do that, I think I have to remove part B?
Could anyone tell me where exactly is the best point to pull up the carpet and try to push the wire ''under the carpet'' further to the hole under the seat where the cables comes out? (maybe highlight it on the picture if possible)

You should undo the seat fixings and tilt it back to give you access to the underside.
Once you pop your sill trims off you will see the wiring loom, simply tie your cable along this following the wiring for your airbags to the seat.

Thank you for your reply.

Another technical question.
When I retrofitted the cupholder LED, I tapped the 12+ and ground wire to the wires of my front footwell light.

It should not be a problem when I want to tap my rear footwell lights into the front footwell light next to current junction with the cupholder right? (so that means both the footwell 12+ and ground wire that both got tapped by cupholder wire at spot A and rear footwell at spot B).

It’s been a while since I done this retrofit, I ran the wires straight in to the multi plug at the RHF footwell and carried out the mods through VCDS, this allowed me to control the lighting through the car. As you have the fronts already installed I’m not sure you would need to do as much as me, I’m no auto spark and I think you should wait for some more feedback before making your decision.
I’ll do some more research and feed back if I get anywhere, I’m sure the members here will add to this when they log in

Yeah i think so too. Just want to make sure.

i honestly think it should not be a of problem for the footwell front wire tapped by two other led lights (at separate points)
