hey guys, just finishing of replacing the body loom in VS.
One major thing that's a pain in the arse I'm not sure how to get this in.

The grey 3 pronged clip that holds the grommet/loom into the firewall (drivers side), getting it out was no worries jut unclip it but how am I meant to get it in?

any advice greatly appreciated.


cheers

push/pull it back into position? needs a bit of force to get the clips to lock in.
Exactly. Also, squirt a bit of soapy water onto it from the engine bay side will also help it.
I reckon the hardest part is getting all the fuse holders and the ABS connector back through.

Hey guys thanks for the advice, I had all the fuse holders/abs etc through already and that was by far the hardest part.
What I did was disconnect a few things in the engine bay (again) and push the grommet back through to the interior, greased up the grommet and the clip and pushed clip on there, then pushed like never before and the bitch clipped in and now it's sweet.

yay, hours of work was just undone lol. back to square 1. :(

connect all engine bay wires, again
interior wires, again
install dash
install bcm
install steering wheel/column
install ignition barrel
check fuses
hook up battery and pray for no explosions/death
if still alive after previous step then TURN KEY AND START FINGERS CROSSED.

if she starts then do a skid lol.
wish me luck!
