Make sure the camera has an extra piece to put the camera lower to miss the duster sign.

I started at the boot by removing two screws and then removed the panel from the boot
Then I fed a draw cable round the boot frame removed a couple of the rubber grommets
I used a old bit of rg6 ariel cable to feed round as it's flexible but stiff enough to push
I removed the bung from the rear heated window and fed the cable up to the top of the boot
Then I removed the cable gland from between the car and boot and fed the cable round to the heater opening then pulled the cable all the way round
Then through the gland between the car and boot this bit took the longest from there I fed it down to the reversing light rear left as facing the car
I removed the rear light using the two thumbscrews using my multimeter I identified the reverse power and the negative . You can decide how you want to connect into this. Scotch lock connectors? I flipped up the tab on the connector and pulled out the two pins required and soldered my cables onto it then resembled.
Next back to the boot lid I popped out the numberplate light and fitted the rearview camera. The light just slides one way then pulls down then inside the boot lid I connected up the wireless transmitter. It powers the camera also. So it just a case of connecting power to the transmitter cable tied the lot together and resembled the boot
Then onto the mirror. The mirror just clips onto the existing mirror I expected this to be bad but it actually was quite good.for me this is just until I fit a new Android head unit. The cable just tucked up under the roof lining and by removing the interior light you can get the cables then in the space above I fitted the receiver unit to the mirror lcd then connected the power into the switched power for the light. Checking what was the power again with my multimeter
A few more cable ties to tidy up then that was it.
Test and it worked great
