159 Reversing camera DIY method - easy

Hey all, I spent ages on here looking at how to fit a reversing camera and they all seemed to end up needing to pay a specialist to fit the camera. I eventually found a way to fit a camera myself. this small and badly written guide will hopefully help anyone struggling with it too although it doesn't cover the wiring to power or visual or any of that but by now you've probably worked all that out. this will just tell you how to get the wires from the inside to the outside of your car.

The main issue seemed to be placement with most people going for above the reg plate but then this means you have to find a way to get the wires from the camera to the inside of the car which is why people suggested getting a pro to do it.

my way means you'll have to put the camera on the black plastic at the bottom of the bumper but here works fine and gives you a good view of the rear of the car.

In the boot unscrew the screws holding the plastic at the very back of the car and lift that out then you'll see some wires leading into a rubber plug, pop that out and drop down the wires (i found tying them together helped, they should drop out of the inside bottom of the bumper by what i think is an airbag crash sensor. then you can fix your camera to the plastic of the bumper and that should do it.

Hope this helps someone, I'll try and get a picture on soon.
