  Has anyone put a mobile rig in a '07 Malibu?  I can work out how to run the antennae line without cutting holes in my car, but the power issue is baffling me.  I can find a single hole with a large wiring harness in the firewall on the driver's side of the car, but can't find where those wires are coming into the cab.

  Can anyone give me some pointers on running power in this model of car?   

  Thanks,

It isn't easy to get to, but there is an extra teat on the main wiring harness. You have to be very careful doing so, and don't use any metallic tools to thread the wire through the teat. It is also best to use some wire lube.
