Project Description
How to run wires through the fire wall

Skill Level
Easy

Project Vehicle
Make: Chevrolet
Model: Colorado
Year: 2015
Engine: V6
Power windows: Yes
Sun Roof: No

Tools Needed
wires
knife with a 3" blade


Project Time
60 - 90 seconds

Project Cost

This is just a simple "how to", just to show people where to run wires from the engine bay through the fire wall.

1) In the engine bay, on the firewall, between the engine and the brake fluid reservoir is the grommet where you want to cut into:


2) Using your knife, just slice straight through, all the way into the cabin area, and then just run the wire(s) through your slit:


3) The wire(s) will come into the cabin through the fire wall between the gas and brake pedal:


4) You can then run the wire wherever you need to for whatever accessories you are wiring up.

Just an opinion, maybe circle the grommet on the engine side of the firewall in the pic, it's kind of hard to tell, but I'm guessing it's the grommet in the center that looks like it has an A/C going into it.

What about the side of the truck? Found a way through the foam padding along the side. Of course downside is it goes over the door seal.

Finally had time to work on the truck, but removed to power wire for my HAM radio. Antenna coming in tomorrow so I hopefully I can install it this weekend.

Finally did the rewire job. Easy as said. Question: Should I get some silicone sealant to put over the cut?
