Rear view camera cable routing Laika 400i 2000 model

Hi,

I'm looking for a good way to route the camera cabling on a rear view camera. I intend to mount the camera high up near the high level brake light and tought I could use the same cabling route to get the camera cable into the van.

I've taken a look tonight and after taking the high level light out I can't find where the brake light cable enters the van body. I'm beginning to suspect that the brake light cable runs down the inside of the van (?) and meets the rear light harness somewhere at the rear of the van.

Has anyone tried this or knows how the brake light cabling is routed can you let me know where the best entry point id for the camera cabling, thanks.

John

Ours is fitted just below the high level brake light and as far as I can see it routes around behind the cupboards to the front.

If it aint broke - fix it till it is

Thanks for that I think I just needed a bit of bravery to start drilling holes ... is yours a 400i too ?

Hi John
Ours is a 100 but the shape is the same as the 400 as far as I know.
