Installing fog lights / getting switch wire through firewall


I am trying to install fog lights on my 2001 Ford Expedition and the directions say to pass them through the drivers side door channel and then into the car. I think this makes the Expedition look bad with exposed wires and am trying to pass them through the firewall instead but can't find a spot to pass them through. Any ideas?

Any help is mch appreciated.

    The steering shaft rubber boot covered by a casing on the inside which makes it very difficult to do this and will crimp the wires when they come out on the inside. I appreciate the advice though.I also looked at the wiring harnesses on each side and they are also super insulated and not able to even be opened on the inside. I don't want to drill but that may be the only option.

You should be able to go through the rubber boot that the steering shaft goes through just use the outer edge so that it does not contact the shaft or you could run it through with the wiring harness on the passanger side but you will probable need more wire.

How to replace fog light bulb on 2001 hyundai 300xg

Replaced from the back side. Two ways to do this. 1. move the wheel well liner partially out of the way to get to the bulb & connector.
2. Remove the headlamp assy above the fog lamp bulb you wish to replace (pass side is easier than the driver's side because of the engine intake ducting on that side)
