Hello,

i've installed hood light on the SK Forester but I cannot for the life of me locate where to route the wiring to the cabin. So for now i've run it to the side thru the fender and the door hinge temporarily. Can someone tell me how to route the switch thru the firewall without having to drill if possible? Thank you!

There has historically been a spot at the upper left (as seen from the driver's seat) rear corner of the engine compartment where stuff comes through. Is it still there in the SKs?

Just left of the brake booster is a grommet / plug. Part number 90371SJ000
Remove the rubber plug.
There is a slice in the firewall insulation making for an easy pass thru.
Modify rubber plug as needed and re-install.

I used this for a pass thru when wiring up the Baja Designs lights.
Inserted the wire harness into some corrugated plastic wire loom for added protection then stuffed it into the hole I punched in the grommet / plug.

If it’s just a single trigger wire to turn on the light, you can route it through the fender like you have, and below the door hinge there should be a wiring loom that passes thru to the foot well. There is also the wiring harness in the middle near the door stay (door speaker wires, central locking, power windows etc).

High up above the accelerator pedal.
It is pretty obvious to see if you shine a light thru the hole after removing the plug.
Easy-peezey!
