Helpful Expert Reply:

I can help you route your 4-way to the # ETBC7.

First thing I would search the cargo area where your wiring harness connector is for a factory grommet to get the 4-pole through.

If there is no grommet the best thing to do is to drill a small access hole to run the wires through. I recommend using the snap bushing grommet # SWC8055 and instead of splicing into your vehicles harness (voids the warranty), I recommend making the splice and reconnection in the 4-way to 4-way loop # HM48145. This will plug into your 4-way already installed on your vehicle and then into the # ETBC7. To secure the splices I recommend using the heat shrink butt connectors # 05730-5. I created and attached a diagram to better explain the best way to do this.

You will want to seal up the hole with silicone like # LT37464 to keep the elements out once your finished.

I have linked all these parts as well as the diagram for your convenience.
