I drilled through a piece of hard plastic (I think that's what it is, could have been metalic, not sure because it's been a while). If you look under the dash, on the drivers side above the pedals, you can see it. If I remember correctly, it is near the brake master cylinder in the engine bay. I think it was white. It was really hard to get a good angle to drill out, but it worked. Hope this helps

What year is your Altima?

Manual or Auto?

I have a 2001 Altima. I pulled of the splassh guard off the front driver's side tire. There are two wiring going through there. One of them is the wire for the hood release. I made a hole in that grommet and ran it through the firewall that way.

Don't forget to pull back the carpet and padding so you can see and get the wire through. :)

Try and find a hole or something of that sort already there. only drill if you have to if so put a little bit of caulk or liquid nails around the wire and hole to keep it from against the metal

Where I drilled was right between the pinch weld and the lower hinge.. there is plenty of room behind.. it comes out of a hole in a foam sheet under the kick panel.

I tried and tried to find a good place but couldn't so I took it to a shop and paid them $5 to drill it, they put it right next to the big cylinder on the firewall (can't remember if its the brake or the power steering) if i get a camera sometime soon I will take a picture ;-)
