Just fitted a wire through the bulkhead as getting a van with the 13pin plug on it , mine only had the 12N socket/plug fitted
Anyway the easy way to get this wire through is to unbolt the air cleaner box and move it over slightly to the offside, I couldn't get it out as the ECU was in the way !!! then I got a knitting needle and poked it through the grommet , taped my wire to it and got up behind the glove box and tried pulling it through but the tape was just bunching up as it was trying to go through the grommet, then I tried again and thought a bit of WD40 over the wire would help it to slip through, and sure enough it came through very easy .

Hope this helps someone who's going to want a wire through from batt to boot i think it's the easiest way to do it :-)

I'm not surprised you got damp in looking at that wiring ! mines nothing like that all the wiring is in plastic trunking , anyway the twin core I put in is that tight in the grommet it's highly unlikely to let any water in :biggrin:
