In my 07, there were two holes. The top one was the fan. There is one underneath that (partially hidden) that goes directly through the firewall.

I ran mine over the top of the ecu through the door jamb. My cover still fits on the ecu to protect from water and I can remove it very easily. I tie wrapped the USB cord and stuck it in the door pocket. Simple solution!

The hole you are accessing is at the back of the box, center and to the bottom. It has no wires going into it.
