You should also check that the front windshield is sealed tight around the frame at times roost could have eaten away the metal under the Rubber seal this was the cause at one of my cars.

The vast majority of cars are Negatively ground. Meaning the negative return for your car runs through the cars frame and metal components. You probaby wont find a ground wire other than the actual negative black wire on the battery, which you will find is attached to the cars metal structure somewhere. Even if there is a ground wire from another compnent within your car to connect to within the car, you can get away without using it. Simply connect the black ground wire from your stereo to somewhere metal, ie slightly under a screw or bolt that goes into the metal subframe or engine firewall under the dash somewhere, join the wire around the screw / bolt and ensure it has good wire to metal contact, the tighten the screw/ bolt up. The subframe / firewall will act as the metal conducter to return power to the negative terminal of your battery. Make take a bit of trial and error to find a good point to join the ground wire but not too difficult to figure out.

I just wrote an answer to this. The firewall is located at the rear of the engine compartment the metal partition that separates the engine from the interior. It runs from fender to fender, behind the brake pedals to behind the glove box. You may have to drill a hole but its best to use an existing wiring harness and poke a hole thru the grommet and run a new wire to the battery.

Follow the main wiring harness from the engine to the point in the firewall where it enters the passenger compartment,

Run amp wire ( usually zero guage very very flexible wire ) through this same hole.

HOWEVER if you don't have enough room you can drill a new hole BUT use a rubber grommet otherwise the metal will chaff the wire and will melt your wiring.

Clutch problem


Likely need to buy a new clutch cable and install,and adjust for proper freeplay,and also possibly address the hole in the firewall .The hole needs to be looked at to make sure it is not oversized,cracked,bent,or otherwise unable to retain the cable.
