  • Firewall penetrations for cables. NT Pajero.

    This has probably been asked before,is there any place reasonably accessable to feed cables through the fire wall on the drivers side without drilling holes as it seems a bit like russian roulett with all the wires ect. on the inside wall.I want to run some wires for my driving lights switch.

    I ran all wires through the left hand side.

    Run a 7 core cable into the car then any future wiring will be in place.

    use contura switches these fit the cut outs right side steering column.

    on off switch 8230 Available through Arid Australia.

      As HSV said, I put my Narva wiring loom switch wires through a small rubber grommet, on the LHS of the vehicle also. I drilled a small 5mm?? hole through the grommet, so I could pass the yellow trigger wire and the larger black group of wires through into the cabin. You can prise the grommet out first, so you drill the hole through it more easily.
      The grommet in question is at end of the red arrows in my photos. Also, you can see I mounted my fuse and relay on an existing bolt on the firewall. Don't look too closely at the excess wire looped there as well. Narva give you a little too much wire, I think.
      Its fairly low down on the passenger side of your Paj and you'll have to take a couple of the plastic covers carefully off inside, from down in the footwell to prise the carpet back, so you can see where the wire comes through into the cabin, a bit fiddly, but neat and no risk. Dust and waterproof as well.
      I also attached the yellow switch wire to the drivers side Highbeam globe, as the LHS was almost impossible to get at, for me anyway.

      PS: You don't say what brand of lights you have, but I guess it'll be a similar setup. Anyway, You only asked about an access hole, so that's my solution. Have fun!!

        Thanks guys, the only problem I have is the main battery now sits in that spot and completely blocks access. I purchased some Narva 225 Driving Lights from flea bay (4WDExtream) then purchased the Narva 74410 switch and loom.

        Cheers,

          If I were you and had the two batteries already in I would cut through the small rubber grommet from inside the cabin and feed as much wire as you can through the hole.
          It will eventually appear, probably will fall to the ground under or near the motor, grab hold of whatever bit you can and pull it up into the engine bay and route it where you want to. A cut up wire coat hanger can work wonders to fish wires out of wierd places, I would probably disco batteries before using the coat hanger fishing expedition.
          It will take a bit of fiddling but if you keep it away from all the hot bits it would be safer than drilling a hole on the driver side.

          Good Luck.
          Regards.....Keith.

            I use a piece of wire as well, I usually make a point on one end and tape the wire on the opposite end, this allows you to push it through rubber grommets without making a cut in it. Lube like silicone spray makes it go through more easily.

                It is possible to feed cable thru' the firewall where the bonnet cable passes.

                  Why not just go thru the large rubber boot poking out near that grommet underneath where a 2nd battery sits. Although I have an NP, the NT is identical going by the pics. Thru that piece of rubber I have 2 x 8ga wires for the rear outlet, cb aerial co-ax and some 6mm twin core to feed an additional accessory fuse box. Others have fed far more than that thru it. You dont need to make any additional holes, just make sure you reseal the end of the rubber boot. If you go down this path, think of future uses and do all your cabling at the one time. It is a PITA to have to remove that battery when you need to feed more thru (been there, done that). As for the bonnet release cable grommit, I have my hi-beam trigger from the RH headlight and the return conductor to the relay thru this point (cause I couldn't be arsed to remove the bat and tray once again). IIRC, I did have to poke a hole in that one, I just couldn't poke anything thru the existing hole, but it is up very high, little chance of water entry.

                    I absolutely agree with you sharkcaver but Maxie appeared to indicate that he did not want to remove the second battery to do the job.
                    Like you and others I used the large cable entry and have fat future use wires installed , which with Murphys Law I probably will never need them.
                    That small gommet is begging to be used in this case though and it's not a bad size to fit a couple of good switch size wires along with a couple of larger ones.

                      I cant argue with that, its a PITA. Just no one had mentioned the "expandable" boot, so I thought I'd chuck that thought into the mix
