On the inside fender near the front, there are a number of round plastic plugs which provide access for rustprofing, etc. You can remove one of these, insert a wire rearwards until it is visable at the hole for the signal. Fasten the signal wires to the fish wire and pull them forward. I then cut a small 'X' in the plastic plug and pull the wires through it. Reinstall the plug and attach the wires.

Note that the stock Volvo pigtail wires that fit the plug for the turn indicator are not quite long enough to reach all lthe way to the front turn signals, so you will need to solder some extensions on to them. I usually try to use estension wires that are correctly color coded for the front turn signals. It is also helpful to use some 'quick loom' to cover and protect the wires that are inside the fender.

Where the repeater lightes go into the fender, there is a rubber plug in the inner panel behind the outer fender. You will need to remove this plug as the connector on the back of the repeater will extend into this hole. Also, be sure to leave enough slack in the wires to allow you to easily remove the repeater from the fender with about 6" of wire.
