Did you take the boot off? There was a huge passage at the bottom of the connector on the sill side.

I put a little hand soap on it to help pull it through the Z-shapped rubber boot, but getting it through the connector was not a deal.

The driver's side wire passage in the kick is blocked by a module. I took out a bolt temporarily to get the wire through.

The passenger side passage was not blocked.

Both passages were plugged with gray foam plugs with a notch for the wire.

Would you like me to take pics of how to do it and post them?
Thanks, I don't need the pics, I get the idea, although it probably wouldn't hurt for others to be able to see it. I did have the connector off didn't notice any passage, it must have had the plug in it. And I gave up and put all the trim back together again. Yes I saw that module sitting there in my way too, all a bit discouraging. I will pull that connector off again and look for the passage, thanks.
