Removing the inside of the trunk's cover ...

Hi there ...

I'm trying to wire a 12 V. outlet inside the trunk to plug my MP3 & FM emitter, therefore I've tried to remove the plastic part inside the superior part of the top case. Unscrewing all the screws was quite easy, everything felt off ( back, loudspeakers, packet holder with 3rd stop light) but ... the thingy didn't want to come out !!!
Has someone already done this ??? I think so since I've already read about an outlet in the trunk.
If you're kind enough to help a frenchie that would be great
Tonio.

You don't need to strip it any further. Just thread a fishwire through the cable openings you have and pull your new cables.

Just pussin' through.

If you weren't so far away, I would have helped you with it. I have a house in 22230 that I visit from time to time but I think that's still quite some way?

I took my power feed from the existing power socket, only slight drawback is that it is ignition switched. There is no choice if you want to retain the ease of removing the box via the two connectors.

Here's one I did earlier.....
