Has anyone run a DEFA cable, 25mm, through the firewall of a Mercedes-Benz E class 2005 model 200CD? The cable is thick, so I guess I have to drill, but I'm a little unsure where to drill. The engine bay is packed, and the floor (passenger side) has numerous layers of insulation and brackets. It's a powercable for a DEFA heater, for connection to external power.

There seem to be a predrilled hole (factory made) in the firewall closed by a rubber membrane, but for some reason steel hoses are put right in front of the opening, making it impossible to use for my thick cable.

I'm thinking about going in through the back instead, but I'm still not sure where it would be best to drill.
