It helps to have a number of different types of tools to help take out molex connectors, like a angled pick tool for example to push on a tab that might be on the backside of the molex.

Great tutorial, i just did that my self last night, in my g35 coupe. I drilled through the molex connectors(one on the door side, and one on the car side)  since there was alot of empty spots in the connectors, then i ran my 2 sets of 16 gauge speaker wire through it. I had a hard time getting the male connector to snap back in place, the connector that sits in the door jamb, not the one that is coming from the door itself. I then, snaked all my wires through the factory grommet. It took a long time but im glad that i took my time to do it right.

I think this is the best route especially in the newer vehicles. +1 on the pump Side...

The other, really pump way to do this if you have access to a pretty vast terminal selection is to actually repin the factory connector.
We try to keep a few terminals in stock at all times for the newer Hondas such as the Ridgeline, Accord, and Odessy, along with the new VW stuff and the Dodges(truck rears). Only takes a couple seconds tocrimp,insert, done. And, you don't need to worry about a body shop cutting your wiring if they need to take the door off.
Just another perspective....

Really good post. Did this a few months ago on my wifes 07 mustang.

I was really wized when I went to work and found the molex. I was hoping it would die with Dodge/chrysler vehicles.

As far as the lazy way, instead of drilling why didn't those jack-a%$es just run the wire to the backside of the head unit and tap onto the factory wire. Even if you have compnonets you can split it inside the car door with the x-overs. It isn't the best option becuase the factory wire isn't as quality as what you are adding, but it would still work really well.

When I worked at Ccity years ago and someone didn't want to pay for the wire required to run everywhere that is what we would go with. With an after market radio harness it takes only a few minutes to do with adding the rcas and remote wire.

Great pics as well.

Just do something

This guide came in handy as I had to do a 4 actuator install on a 07 mazda 6 a few weeks ago. The first one took some time but the last three I breezed through them quickly

I signed up to this forum just to say thanks a ton for taking the time to post this up with awsome pictures, I was looking for some info on this for ages before I came across this post.
I am doing an install on a 2008 Mazda 3 at the moment and this is going to be gold for doing those front doors.
