Exclamation Running new speaker wire

I am currently in the process of replacing the entire sound system in my 08 G6. I've gotten the new deck in with the metra replacement and I've gotten almost all my speaker wires ran, however today i ran into a problem. I cannot figure out how to get the wire into the door of the car. If anyone has a solution for this it would be very greatly appreciated.

Tim.

There is a rubber gromit in the door. Its hard to fit wires throught, but once you get it through, its cake to wire the speakers.

I had the grommet off and where it connects to the body of the car it looked like it connected into some sort of wire distributor that was the size of the grommet, is that not so? or is there a place to slip the wire through?

The gromet is the part attached to the car. You run the wire through there then you put it in a small hole (you make) in this stuff.

Then once you get it through this rubber stuff you can grab it through where you have removed the speaker.
