Installation kit

The installation kit is composed of an interface and a harness that will connect to the MIB (it is in some ways the computer that manages the media of the car and it is located in the glove box). Still in this kit you will find a LVDS cable, a small harness to connect the cameras to the interface, a rear view camera incorporated in a trunk handle, an extension cable for the rear camera, a front camera on its support, an extension cable for the front camera, tools to extract the MIB, tools to unhook the interior trim of the car.

The Installation

For the installation, we begin by disconnecting the battery and removing the glove box. For that, it is necessary to unhook the side cash of the dashboard on the passenger side. Help yourself with the tools provided by sliding the tool into the gap and rotating the wrist. Repeat the operation all along the slot. Then, we unscrew the 9 new screws present on the dashboard on the passenger side. One on the right, 6 in the high part of the glove box. And 2 under the glove compartment. It is useful to use an extension of flexible key to reach the screw which is at the bottom on the left. One can then delicately draw on the glove box which slips away. It is then necessary to remove the MIB by removing the screws present on both sides of this one.

Once the MIB is removed and deposited, you must disconnect the old beam present and connect the beam provided with the camera instead. You must then disconnect the gray or pink plug to put in its place the blue plug of the LVDS cable supplied with the kit. We connect to the interface the small harness provided with the kit. Put the switches 1,2 present in the red circle on "on" and the 3,4 on "off". The extension cables of the cameras must be connected to the small harness. The two red wires are connected between them and with the purple wire which comes from the small beam. One reconnects then the battery then one starts the car. We put the reverse gear to see if the image appears. If it is not the case, it is that you connected the switches badly.
