  • Aftermarket radio aerial wiring?

    I recently installed a new stereo in the venerable old Prado, and after a bit of usage I decided that it would benefit from a better aerial. I have the aerial (GME AEM7), and have mounted it on a very clever little bracket from Kaon that attaches using the bonnet hinge bolts on the left side and allows the aerial to be mounted just above and behind the back edge of the bonnet. I put the aerial on the bullbar first, but really didn't like having it so prominent in my field of view, then discovered the bracket which puts it away to the left where it is much less obtrusive.

    Anyway, the puzzle now is how/where to thread the cable through the firewall and up to the space behind the stereo. I found a large rubber plug/grommet sort of thing low down on the left side with other wiring going through it, and I WAS able to push the aerial connector through there. But I couldn't find it on the inside, and I didn't persist because there is a large amount of wiring in that area and I didn't want to disturb/damage anything. And I didn't want to take the dashboard apart much, partly because the passenger airbag is in the vicinity too.

    If anyone here has fitted an aftermarket aerial of any sort forward of the firewall, it would be good to hear how you got the cable through to the cabin. I'll take it to a car audio installer if necessary, but would prefer to do it myself if I can.

    If it is a 120 or 150 take off the kickplate on the LHS. All will be revealed. Through the grommet is the right way in.

      OK thanks. I did remove just a small part of it, maybe should have gone further. Will revisit.
