Need to hide cable in 147

I'm trying to hide SatNav cable down through the dash and into the fuse box under the steering wheel.

Just wondering is it difficult to feed the cable through the following dash points?:

A) - Through centre air vent on top of dash
B) - Between the dash and windscreen area, perhaps near the corner post
C) - The small air vent in the corner.

How much work is involved in removing the dash/pnels etc, i'm thinking point C is best as it's closest to fuse box

If you take the radio out there's a couple of hex screws which (when undone) will allow you to lift out that air flow 'thingy' then you can drop the fuse box lid and you can see right up.

I've done the - small air vent one works fine.
Also you can feed behind the dash to the right into the fuse box area.

At the moment, until I get round to a more permanent installation, I've got mine plugged into the lighter socket then run through the fuse box & up the side, just pushed into the gap between the door seal & the end of the dash. The advantage of this is that when the SatNav's not in use the cable can drop into the gap between the dash & the door & be completely invisible from the outside (except at the lighter end, of course!).

I had my sat nave in the same place as yourself, Halfrauds installed my cable behind the dash and into the back of the cigarette lighter for 40, did a good job too.
