new speaker wire to driver door

I managed to replace all the speaker wires to the other 3 doors - but what's the secret for the driver side door?

Do I need to unbolt the emergency brake bracket? If so, are there more than 2 bolts? Hate working while standing on my ear

I don't really remember doing this. but I know I never unbolted anything. I think there is a black rubber cover or something like that blocking access a to the hole. You have to feed a fishtape from the door to the passenger compartment. then pull the wires through. I used a coat hanger at the time i did mine. I think the access to it is just really limited. stick with it.
