    Hi Everyone,

    I had a Escort 9500CI radar detector installed on my 2.5 Roadster by a company that moved to California.

    Unfortunately, the front receiver went out which is mounted in the front grill. My dilema is how to remove the old one, install the new receiver and route the cables through the firewall.

    Here is the picture of the front grill.

    Here is the picture of the interface panel. The cables run behind it and through the firewall, but I'm having trouble tracing them.

    Thank you to all that have more knowledge.

    My last resort will be to take it to another company, but I'd like to do it myself.

    Once you have traced it, and freed it from the tie wraps, you should be able to carefully pull the new cable through the firewall with the old one.

    Do you have any experience of where it would go through the firewall and how much of the dash would have to be disassembled?

    I've done it several time in the 'S' but not the Roadster, so I can't be specific for you.

    Usually the lower part center and Glove box is sufficient. There is no way to tell until you start tracing and disassembling.
