I just got my e-codes on my 2000 2.0l jetta, and can not find anyplace to run the wires through the firewall. I've looked at all of the sites about install and i can't locate any of the places they are referring to.
Help!!

I tied into the main wire bundle that goes through the firewall near the left-hand wiper. I pulled up the grill over the wiper mechanism, poked a small hole in the rubber cover on the bundle, and pushed the wire through into the compartment behind the fuse panel. Slapped a patch over the 'entry wound' with silicone, and Voila'!

I thought e-codes were just plug and play.

They are. But if he got the ones with integrated fogs, he has to run the wire for the fogs to the euroswitch.

I've looked a few times, and I haven't been able to locate that bundle, but I will look again.

Look in the top left and right corners of the master cylinder. There are two grommets, one in each side.

Inside the car, if you have taken the lower portion of the dashboard off, you will see the grommet directly above your gas pedal.

Yep, there is a rubber grommet about the size of a quarter. Poke a hole and run the wire down there.
Or you could do it like this:
