That RCA connector is too big to fit thru any of the rubber grommets in the firewall used to let the factory wires pass thru into the passenger compartment.

The only solution that I see is to cut off the existing RCA plug that you are holding, pass the wire thru the factory rubber grommet, and then re-solder the RCA connector back onto the wire. A lot of extra work.

It will go thru the top grommet/hole which can be found just below the bonnet on the extreme left side(driver side in US)
I have run thru a similar sized connector for the cb radio.
Pop the bonnet and approach from the side, you will have to remove the triangular plastic cover and look deep inside towards firewall
