Default Illuminated door sills

I have bought the illuminated door sills (51477203608, 51477203607) and cable set (61119220310).

To install, I need to drill a hole near the door sills. The question is where does this hole needs to be located. Does anybody have pictures of this option installed, especially the hole where the cable needs to run?

I was checking TIS and based on the picture (flat cable is white in between plug 2 and 3), it seems that the flat cable runs on top of the rubber gasket, but I am unsure.

Meanwhile I have installed the seals. It's not a big effort. The cables go through a small gap (specially made for the flat cable) to the inside of the car underneath the rubber gasket. Then it connects to the foot well lights. It is a 15min job.
