Default GROMMIT HELP NEEDED NOW PLEASE!!!

ok everything is ready, but i cant find a grommet in can get though....

there is two places i can find right in front of the driver side... one has a thin wire but that one seems to be made just to wrap around that


the other holds a much bigger wire, that is foam, and i can slide the wire around with it but i cant fit another 4 guage wire into it

I've never pulled a grommit out in 3 full installs. Just poke a hole, or go around the firewall...

the way i did it is i ran another piece of wire through the other side and electrical taped it to the wire i was pulling through and pulled it...i also used a little bit of soap to make it slide better.
