Remove the cap and the bolt holding the upper left side, rear seat belt holder and pull the panel partially free. Remove the push clips visible on the edge of the headliner and pull down the edge of the headliner so that you can begin routing your cables. Bring the camera wire from your harness around to the larger rubber boot connecting the hatch wiring to the interior of the car. Manipulate the camera connector up through this rubber boot. Take your time : ) Once through, make your connection to the cable from the license plate camera to complete this phase. Route your cable down the left side and out near the area behind the tail light. This is where we will make the connections for camera power and ground. The wiring harness for your camera contains connectors and wire taps so that no wires will need to be cut during installation. The wire taps are designed to simply fold around a wire, and when squeezed together with a pair of pliers, create a convenient connection for your harness wires to plug into. Locate the wires behind the clear reverse tail light. Place wire taps on both wires of its connector ( PINK and WHITE W/BLACK STRIPE ) Plug the wires from the camera harness into the appropriate wire tap. The GROUND wire from your camera harness pugs into the WHITE W/BLACK STRIPE wire and the 12V/REVERSE wires are both plugged into taps on the PINK wire. You may find it more convenient to place a tap on one of the power wires of the camera harness to connect them both together, and then place a single tap on the PINK wire to make your connection to. The additional lengths of camera harness wiring may be stored inside this panel area. Next, the video cable from the camera is routed to the front of the vehicle. This is accomplished by lifting out the rear cup holder and pulling the cable up and through to the front of the vehicle. There is a bolt on the front of the cup holder panel and then it can be lifted out. Tuck the wire under the edge of the trim panels along the doors as you bring the video cable up to the front of the car. The trim panel should be pulled up at the driver area to allow the kickpanel up front to be pulled free. Again, no screws are holding these panels in place and are simply pulled free with your fingertips.
