    I have a 95 Buick century. I am trying to find a hole in the firewall on the bottom drivers side for my 4 gauge wire to my subs amp. I have had no luck, I don't know where to drill a hole, but i am hoping there already is one in that area with a plug for this purpose. any sites out there that list them?

    not sure on that specific car, however, for all of my vehicles(even ones that were never offered in stick) have had a good place near where the clutch would be.

    Thats the fucking point. You DONT have a clutch, which means nothing is there! Use that spot.

    never seen a 95 century that wasnt automatic, and if that firewall isnt shared with another car that did come manual, he aint getting through the clutch plate area. gonna end up poking a hole in the brake booster.

    Just go through where the main wiring harness comes into the car. Normally thats through the fender, doorjam. Done.

    The hole in the firewall is hard to see because its usually filled by a rubber grommet thing, with one or many cords coming out of it. You can push this aside to gain access. Usually under the steering wheel somewhere or thereabouts.

    fender mounted antenna?

    if so, use the antenna grommet, poke it out, take it off, cut it open a bit, press 4ga through.. Done.

    See if you can find a step drill bit. If you can drilling out the hole is not a problem just watch wiring and the braking system.

    i had a 91 buick regal, and there was just an empty rubber grommet i think somewhere on the driver side. I just poked through that little guy. if you can't find anything like that then ur gonna have to make a hole. just be sure to KNOW what ur drilling into. otherwise just pay the 70 bucks to get it done professionally. that way if they fuck up they have to pay for it, not u.
