Anyone seen any access holes along the side of the car? I though there was some wiring ready somewhere for the fitting of the Startech ones?
There is access hole on the floor pan, which is sealed by a rubber grommet near the front jacking points. You feed wire out from the floor pan and run it to the side skirts. The carpets will need to be lifted for feeding wire to make proper connection. I cannot remember the colour coding but I think it might be the 'white wire with the yellow stripe' or 'yellow wire with the white stripe' for the cabin courtesy lights. The negative is achieve by connecting the wire to anywhere good for ground. The cabin courtesy wire travels down to A pillar to the side sills both sides, you can access the wires by lifting the carpet. To make it easier finding the correct wire in the loom, remove the cabin courtesy lights and trace it back, hopefully its either 'white wire with the yellow stripe' or 'yellow wire with the white stripe' ( I honestly cannot remember, its been a while). Alternative you can hook up a voltmeter and determine directly at the sills.
(My thoughts regarding rear doors - For near OEM fitment, remove the rear door card, feed new wire through following the electric window loom from the rear door to the B pillar and then meet up with the 'white wire with the yellow stripe' or 'yellow wire with the white stripe' at the sills. You is rubber boot housing the wires carry the loom from the door to the B pillar). Hope it helps.
Good luck everyone with the led mod
