Cable routing for new reversing Camera
This year I shall be towing a largish box van trailer behind my 2007 I840BD. The van came fitted with a B&W reversing camera which isn't up to the job, so I wanted to upgrade to a colour jobbie with two lenses so I can see where the trailer is going when I reverse. I want to fit the replacement camera in the same location just below the high central brake light.
Does anyone have any information on the likely routing of the cabling and therefore how much dismantling needs to be done to run a new cable, as I'm sure the old and new would require different wiring?
All I can say so far is that the monitor is mounted on the dashboard vent and the cable disappears down into the dash towards the right-hand side, I haven't removed anything to dig deeper, as there is no point if I am to be stymied by the amount of work required in the rear compartment over the garage. I'm short of time to arrange for a professional fitting so I wanted to know what sort of world of pain I would face.
Suggestions much appreciated.
