Default SiriusXM antenna install? Anyone around?

Decided to put in a new unit in the xB that has CarPlay, hands free, etc.

Got a Pioneer AVH-W4400NEX.

When I bough the xB new, it is just the stock Pioneer with CD, no XM, etc.

Issue I am anticipating is running the wire from the front to the back. Can't seem to find anything on it.

Looking to install as it was then, on the back passenger side.

Doubtful will get a response in time, but if you know, please share.

​​​​​​​Thanks!

This is all I can find:

Antenna Location..

I'm not sure if this was what you were looking for.

Hope it Helps,

Thanks.

No.

Way back when, Scion had a Sirius or XM install kit (this was back when they were separate services). Looking on how best to run the wire from the head unit to the back and place in on the passenger side back.

Lot of links on the board go nowhere by the way.

If you're installing an XM antenna, why not just put it on the top edge of the passenger side dashboard? I had mine there with no issues.

Otherwise, you can put it on the top of the car rear passenger side, into the loom where the tailgate wires run through, under the headliner, down the passenger c pillar, along the floor moldings, up the pass kick panel, behind the glove box, and then into the radio compartment.

Did just that.

Only concern is that I was not able to get under the weather stripping that wraps around the hatch.

Hope that doesn't mean leaks.
