I unbolted the hatch hinge to get better access to the opening in the hatch door.

I fed steel wire into the hatch door opening all the way up to the access hole for the window sprayer.

I also fed the wire into the rubber tube that is connected to the cabin and the hatch.

I hooked the antenna cable ( like a fish ) and wrapped it in a electric tape.

I did this step first cause I figured it will be very hard to get this cable thru the robber tube.

I was write , it was very difficult since the tube is almost tight around the wire harness that goes thru 

the tube. I used some WD-40 and that helped a lot.

This plastic peace needs to be attached to the rubber peace be four you clip it back into the body.

The rubber is stretched onto that plastic clip ring.

NOTE: It's very difficult to get the antenna cable thru with this plastic attached to the rubber.
