I'm trying to install a rear dash cam and it's impossible to snake the dash cam wire through the wire tubing in the top inside of the lift gate.

There are tabs on the tubing where you can grab - I assume to pop the tubing out - but nothing I have tried will get that tubing to pop out. I have plastic pry tools but even those didn't help. I've tried running a stiff wire down it to then tape the dash cam wire to and pull it through, but it's packed so tightly I can't even do that.

I understand this tubing is weatherproofed but isn't there a way to pop it out??

I've popped my out to install a dash cam and you need to work from the end of the grommet not the sides. I can't remember exactly how I did it but it was quite easy (by hand) once I realized that pulling on the side tabs wouldn't do it.

I believe that I just pushed in the end of the grommet and it popped out, if I remember correctly there's a plastic clip on the end that hooks under the steel.

Cheers,
Neil.
