Hey all i need some help installing the amp wire in my buick regal ls. I looked today and i couldnt find anywhere to run the wire thru the firewall safely. Its a 2003 if anyone has any info that would be great. I couldnt find much on google. Also its going to be 4 ga wire.

Look for already existing grommets that may be big enough to fit the wire through. You won't find this on all vehicles, so you might have to make your own hole and use a grommet. If you need to make your own hole, find a place that is safe for the wire. Keep clear of moving parts, pinch points, hinges and sharp objects. Know where your drilling! If you need to make your own hole, pull back the carpet inside and any hoses or wiring outside the firewall first and make sure you don't drill into something blindly. I also recommend you start with a 1/8 inch drill bit, then confirm clearance, then increase the drill size to whatever needed for the grommet. And make sure you USE A GROMMET or equivilant pass-through wire protector and a main fuse at the battery connection.

Hey i know this is a old post but does anyone know how to get the dash apart to remove the stock head unit? I looked quick and wasnt sure how to do it. Any help would be great.
