Default running speaker wires through door 08 GT

ok, i need some serious help. im really having a tough time trying to get my 12awg speaker wires through the grommet for the drivers door, havent even touched the passenger one yet.

after fighting it, i realized it was a harness, not a channel, so i cant run a wire THROUGH it. i cant even get a pair of snips in there to cut a notch in the opening to fit.

has anyone done this? any tips?

i got the wire through the rubber grommet, but i cant get it into the cabin!!

yeah i had an insane amount of trouble trying to get this to work. you have to pry out that grey piece that the wires are running through. then you can run the wire through that and into the kick.
the grey piece isnt actually part of the wire harness, so you can unclip it from the rest of it. then just run the wire through it and set it back in place and put the gromet back over it.

good luck with it

really? it looked kinda like a junction connector, like a distribution block, i dunno im having a hard time describing it. i didnt want to disconnect the terminal for fears of never getting it back, lol.

ill give that a shot tomorrow, i just came in for the night, getting cold. ill take off the connector and see if i can get wires through it.

at least the rear speakers will be easy...even for 6x9's...all i have to do is make 4 cuts into the decklid, there is even a perfect little "box" in the rear bracing for the crossover.

this was helpful for getting it off, but now how the hell do i get the boot back on the clip,my hands barely fit as it is. i couldn't get the plug out, just too tight of a space, so instead of trying to find a good place to run the speakerwire i kinda stuffed it in the square cut out i hope i won't have vibration wear problems. but now i can't get the boot over it. tips?

you gotta work it like you own it. I will tell you to be carefull if it is not completely back inside and seated. I remember seeing an installer one time not seat one correctly and it worked its way back out. When it did come back out it became stuck between the front of the door and the front fender. The lady that owned the car wondered why the door was a little hard to open, so she forced it open and when she did she wrinkled the front of the door on the hrns.

I took the door right off. Was real easy then to get the boot back on. Removing the door and putting it back took about 15 minutes. I fought with that stinking boot for over half an hour before I gave up..
