    Tacotunes website walks you through it and there is a device sold online for the parking brake. Welcome aboard.

    To get the mic up to the visor, pop the caps off of the grab handle, remove the two 10mm bolts, remove the handle, pop the pillar cover off.

    Personally, I'd run it across to the passenger side since it's easy to pop the glove box out and you can get your hand almost all the way from under the dash to the top of the dash, and can also reach in on the left and get a finger onto the back of the HU.

    Then after running the mic up the pillar, just tuck it into the front of the headliner and across to your mirror or visor.
