Wire information about a power window or power top car
« on: March 14, 2024, 01:15:42 AM »
I have a friend installing power windows in his 69 coupe. There's a wire with a grommet that comes from the inside of the car, through the firewall & goes to the circuit breaker. I went though the AIMs book but couldn't come up with a definitive answer as to where that hole needs to be. Even the chart doesn't show that hole. Power top should have the same hole. It should be 1/2". Can anybody help please & tell me the location of that hole? Thank you, Joe

Passenger side of the fuse box, there is a dimple. I believe the hole size is 1/2". Hole was done by Fisher. That's why it's not in the AIMs book...Joe

There is most likely a rubber grommet that the wire runs through that mounts on the fire wall also

There is. It's part of the harness.....Joe
