Default Where to run amp pwr in manual pt

The question says it all, theres hardly any space down with the pedals and no empty grommets like most suggest! Due to clutch I cant reach the hood latch grommet so I need somewhere to run my amp cable. Its 17 ft long so its long enough but I cant make too many odd turns, rca is ran along the passenger side so i cant run power wire down that side.

I have a drill but its pretty useless.

I ran my power out through the same grommet as the hood cable release. Plenty of room in that grommet. It's on the driver's side of the firewall, near the left kick panel. There are pictures posted here somewhere from me running it. I'm not at home so don't have access to any of my stuff....

I had already answered this but then re-read the first post where it said you couldn't reach the grommet that the hood release used because of the clutch pedal. I deleted the post.

I'll re-post the HOW TO that's on the top of this sound section which shows the grommet and an empty space where the clutch pedal would be. You should be able to go around that pedal to reach the area where the hood release is.

Where to run amp power wire?

I finally got it in after 3 days of trying lol. Eventually half cut my arm off weaving it through the pedals and wires etc... Ended up using a knife to repeatedly jab the grommet till it gave way enough for the wire to go through.. Whew!

I pushed through from the engine compartment. Took about 15 minutes.
