You need to slide out the connector and move around some of the pins in the connector. Then you need to drill out some of the plastic without hitting any of the factory wiring. It should look like a hole in the connector when done then you can run your cable through. Without a doubt the most difficult part of my install.

This is the the annoying part, wrap a long zip tie around the end of the cables and use the ziptie to help you route the cable where it needs to go. While your at it I would run new speaker wire as well if you ever plan on running a lot of power to your speakers.
