Easy place to wire power cable through bulkhead - Clio 182

Clio 182 - I need to run a power cable to the battery in the enginebay along with some other wiring. Has anyone run cables to the interior without majorly stripping the car down?
I cannot really use a longacre bulkhead terminal as I have suspension wiring to add in too (electronic damping)

Ok. So attack it from engine bay side and thread through? or remove the door trim suround and pull up carpet to get to the grommet?

You can access it under the glovebox without removing anything. It's pretty fiddly! If you can use a screwdriver to make the initial incision, then empty a pen out and push this into the hole. From here you can feed the power cable through the pen.

TBH its easiest just to drill the bulkead.

Below the bonnet pull. Theres a gap in the grommet that is perfect for this.

Have to remove the PAS bottle to access it.

I tried this when I was fitting the oil gauge.

Fucked it off and just drilled a hole and stuck a grommet on it, put the wires through and then stuck some black sealant in to seal it up proper.
