C4 reversing camera

Post by Exbt95 »

I have a dream which is proving a bit of a nightmare, that is to fit a reversing camera to my 2015 C4 Picasso.
I have a camera to fit the aperture in the tailgate and a clip on mirror/monitor, all I need to do is thread the wire from the tailgate to the front of the car! To do this I need to remove the lining from the tailgate, having removed 5 screws from either side the lining is loose on 3 sides but is fixed firmly up against the glass on the 4th.
My question is does anyone know how to remove the trim from the tailgate please. Mick.

Hi Mick - pop you VIN up so we have the correct version, then we might be able to advise.

A bit late, but here is my way: I have a look-a-like GoPro and this can be WiFi-ed to my smartphone. OK, so it needs to be left 'on' (inside the rear window) but it is cheap and quick. And when I go out on my bike I have the phone on a handlebar clip and the camera (on rear panier) pointing backwards, so I can see what's coming up behind. Works well, turning my head round is difficult.
