Hi There,
Just wanted to confirm what goes through the center(ish) firewall grommet on a 1973 Spider Spica version. I believe it is:
Heater Hose
Speedo Cable
Hand Throttle cable

Any else that should be routed through this grommet before I start wrestling it into place?

If someone has a photo of their installed grommet on a 73 spider it would be much appreciated.

Thanks
Andrew

I just started this process on my S2 and I’m disappointed to see no one responded to your question. The grommet looks too big for the whole but the hose fits through fine so I’m wondering if there’s a trick to installation or if it’s just a wrestling match. Can anybody offer any advice?

Yes... I just have heater hose and Speedo cable (I'm not running an hand throttle). There may be a chance this is also where the windshield washer hose goes as it passes from reservoir 'bag' in the engine bay to the interior foot switch.

wrestling match. Use glycerin or liquid soap on the edges to get it to fit in. It can be a real pain in the wazoo
