    its exactly the same as the corsa - youll need to drill through the bulkhead though (or find the grommet on the drivers side - i found it easier to drill)

    its a little tricky getting the wiring under the side trim panels aswell as they dont come out without taking the seats out first. Youve got to pull the rubber bit back then tuck the wires in

    I just fed the wires through - its a bit fiddly but perfectly doable

    I took the back seats out so i could remove the rear quarter panels, you wont have to do this though as youve got a 5 door

    now then mate
    you from Grimsby?
    Me and my dad wired my subs up in my old Astra, we managed to get 4AWG under the side panels, without removing any back seats
    I imagine having a 5 door would be a little easier... bit more room when you open the back doors
    If you need a hand give me a shout

    I couldn't find the grommet so I took the glovebox out, and drilled a hole.
    I've been meaning to re-wire my new subs in my astra but still haven't bought the wiring kit

    EDIT: If you need a hand I'd be happy to help dno how much help i'd be tho, but if you need an extra pair of hands give me a PM

    If your car is drive by wire and doesn't have a throttle cable then there's a small rubber grommet just above the throttle pedal.
