Look for a rubber grommet that has a bunch of rubber stalks on it...looks like a Darlek

:-)

You can flip,off the end of a stalk to make a path to the dash. Zip tie those wires to stuff so they don't get loose in your engine compartment.

Hi again,

So i guess this is under the dash to the left of the steering wheel?
And i guess i have to take the under dash cover off then?
If this is right and if i remember right i dont remember the size of that screw head that removes that cover, it was a star type right or no?
I’ve been driving a Volvo long before anyone ever paid me to drive one.

Yes, that screw should be a torx. Yes on the other questions.
Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
