    This might not get any answers here, but it's worth a shot. When we had our car's stereo replaced, we got one with an iPod dock connector, through the glove box. Well, our glove box is crap, and keeps coming unhinged, causing everything in there to fall out every time we open it to plug the iPod in. When they installed the new stereo, it was smaller than the factory one, so there's a space just below the stereo. I was wondering if there's anyone here who has re-wired the iPod adapter so that it runs through there instead of the glove box. Thanks. (The car is an 02 Chevy Malibu, and it's a Pioneer stereo with a VERY long dock connector cable.)

    You can the wire any way you want since most likly it's just a plug on the back of the stereo. The hardest thing I think will be the opening up your dashboard to readjust the wire. Good luck

    Well, considering that I need to remove the dashboard to replace the broken hazard switch, I'll bundle it together. Now I have a reason to get around to fixing the blinker. xP
