      The main plugs are really long so I had to order a better trim tool kit and it has the pliers to pull the clips out that worked great. I bought this one and like it so far, much stiffer plastic than first kit I bought

      Then once you get those out there are just 2 small clips olding the headliner to roof, just popped those out with one of the tools.

      Then remove front clips and you can separate from front headliner. There are 2 magnets holding it to the roof which is nice. Don't forget to disconnect the lights before dropping it down

      I haven't done it, but I would run it right up the A-pillar and up under the headliner to where you want to put in a pass-through. Access to the area between the glovebox and the A-pillar is under the cup holder, which pries off easily. The A-pillar trim also comes off pretty easily by prying up the edges and firmly pulling, but there is a leash on it because there's an airbag behind it. The leash takes some wrangling to twist and pull in two different directions to get off, but you can likely just leave it in place. But while you're in there, you might as well put in some good tweeters and run a new wire to your door--faroutride.com has some good info on this, as well as @Hein Youtube channel, DIYVan. You don't have a signature indicating what type of Transit you have, but if you have a cargo, the cab headliner drops easily from the back by prying the three retainer clips near the center giving room to reach in and get access. If you want to run 10 or 12 AWG wire, a solar gland like this would work for a pass-through: 3/4" NPT Solar Masthead | M3234GBS-SM | ElecDirect. Alternately, something like this for 10-12 AWG, also used for solar: Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Link Solar Weatherproof ABS Solar Double Cable Entry Gland for All Cable Types 2mm² to 6mm² for Solar Project on Rv, Campervan, Boat. For smaller wire, I'm sure you can source something, as well.

      I suggest getting a trim panel removal kit, if you don't already own one, which will help keep from breaking clips and trim: Amazon.com: 19Pcs Trim Removal Tool,Car Panel Door Audio Trim Removal Tool Kit, Auto Clip Pliers Fastener Remover Pry Tool Set with Storage Bag: Automotive

      Thanks!

      Did you have to unbolt the left and right side bolts before being able to lift or the rear light middle itself?
      The middle of the light can be removed first, just need a trim removal tool. I bought this kit; has come in very handy on many projects. These type of fixtures are straightforward to remove, just keep a container handy for the screws that are removed (easy to lose).
