  • Firewall wire routing...

    Whats the easiest way to route wires to the engine compartment from the passenger compartment?
    I don't like going thru the driver side quarter panel, real PITA to get to from engine compartment...

      If you don't have A/C, then on the passenger side of the firewall, in the engine bay, you will see two plastic plugs for the A/C lines. In the passenger area, they are covered by carpeting, but that's no problem to just pull away.

        So mine has A/C lines that are no longer in use, they are just sticking through the Firewall. How hard is it to pull them out? I remember trying to take a Festiva Dash apart many years ago when I was just a young lad but did not succeed.

          The a/C unit is a separate piece for the Festiva so you can remove the evaporator box without tearing the whole dash out. You will have to loosen it and swing the passenger side out a little though for clearance.

            Cool, probably shed a couple extra pounds that isn't being used.
