Back up camera install

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I hope you're well. I am in the process of upgrading my Ford S-max 2010 models head unit. I am goi g to go with a kenwood double din dab android and thought I would put a reversing camera in as well. Has anyone installed one that has advice on a good camera and if you run the video cable to the head unit through the roof trim or into the floor trim. And the best way to connect into the reversing light for ground and live supply. 

 

Thank you Lee

I installed a backup camera a few weeks ago. I ordered a relatively cheap one off aliexpress that replaces one of the license plate lights. It was a real pain to install. I ended up drilling a hole in the part of the hatch under the trim and running the wires up through the right side rubber conduit. This required removing the entire inside trim of the hatch  and the c-pillar. Once it was past the c pillar it was very simple to run it inside the upper door seals.
