2010 Honda CRV Firewall access

I am a new owner of a 2010 CRV "toad" and I need to run a couple of wires into the cab area from the front end and the battery. This would be a brake away switch wire and a 12V plug wire. Anyway I was hoping someone has visited this problem and has a quick solution to get through the firewall without drilling or breaking something. I have seen others posts here and elsewhere all talking about older CRV's, but I am specifically looking for info on the 2009 - 2011 models. I see there is a small rubber grommet just right of the middle of the firewall, but access to this from the inside of the cab looks to be covered with the heater stuff and the center consul.

Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

I just had our 2009 HOnda CRV wired for brakes and lights. I watched the instlaller do this job, and we could not find any opening thru the firewall to run a braking cable without drilling a hole. We used Blue Ox base plate with a Readybrake Brute towbar and their instructions state to drill a hole thru the firewall just in line slightly above the brake pedal to run the brake cable thru. This is supposed to be the best place to get thru the firewall considering all the stuff that's in the engine compartment around the same area. If you have to drill, just be careful and drill a small pilot hole to make sure you're in the right spot. Maybe if your wires and stuff and small, you can find a way thru elsewhere, but in our case the cable conduit was such that it had to be drilled-no other option.

Did the installers have to remove your 2009 Honda's two taillight assemblies?

If so, how did they do it?

Tech, That would be NO. It is a 2010 Honda. They installed my lighting system using a couple of diodes and did not add any additional bulbs in the lights. Works good. I am on the road, moving around and towing the Honda.

Still would like to find a easy way through the firewall for the break buddy, break-a-way plug hookup.

Techwriter- on my 2009 Honda, they simply removed the screws holding the entire taillight assemblys on each side and added the diodes to the existing wiring. They did not cut any holes in the taillight assembys since no bulb and socket kits were used. Works very well.
