    Parking sensor - cable to bumper

    Hi.

    I'm trying to mount a parking sensor on my Astra-G.

    The problem is how to pass a cable (1.5mm of diameter) to the bumper. The plate number light has a rubber fixed to the chassis and I can't pass the cable through it.

    The ECU of sensor will be located close to the rear driver lights. (RHD)

    I just need to pass one cable, not more.

    Any ideias?

    Astra-G '98

    Thank you!

    Drill a hole and fit a grommet?

    Thanks for the pic. Sorry but the question is where/how to pass through the cable(s) without drilling, not the location of the camera.

    if you go under the rear of the car and look between the bumper and body you will see a vent (almost behind number plate light) on the body just push cables through there, then go in the boot and remove the black plastic trim from boot wall. and finish pulling wires through

    if need pics just let me know and i will take some
