2001 L-Series 3.0L Wagon
Question Headliner and Side Curtain Airbags

I have recently purchased a 2001 LW-300 with the optional (for that year) side curtain airbags. I am looking to install my amateur radio in the car. In order to do that, I need to run a cable from the area around the inside rear view mirror through the headliner to the rear left quarter area. Cable is about the size of a Cat5 network cable.

I have no experience with the side curtain(sc) airbag systems. In previous vehicles without the SC airbags, I have just taken the trim loose at the lower edge of the headliner and placed the cable up under the edge of the headliner and reassembled everything. I am afraid such a method would either (1) damage or disable the sc airbag on that side; or (2) perhaps actually windup inadvertently activating the airbag system, which could be expensive.

Anyone of you Saturn techs that can give me some pointers on the feasibility of getting the cable through the headliner by removing the dome lamp and using a fish wire or such?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
