    Can anyone identify the most convenient place to pick up a feed from the above to supply an aftermarket reversing sensor system. It appears that as the lamps are fitted to the tailgate, there will not be a feed wire within the load-bay lamp area.
    Any help, including colour coding and how to remove and replace inner linings, if necessary, would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks Ronnie. Wire colours resolved but site dosn't seem to allow access to component or wiring locations. Looks like the rear headlining will have to come down!

    Using Internet Explorer 7, and Adobe SVG viewer 3.0 for wiring diags. (latest I could find to download). If I click on the "green" idents I just get a message "internet explorer cannot download - Unspecified error. " If I try to go into the "components" section and pick location symbol, just get a series of numbers.

    Not normally without sufficient notice and a course of tablets! (I'm probably somewhat older than you).
    I can get the equivalent wiring diagram for the E91 (not the one you attached), but when I try to pickup on the green "X" component refs, the internet will not download. If, alternatively, I use the ref numbers in the Components listings, although it seems to offer a Location symbol, all that comes up is a series of numbers rather than a body diagram. As my original query, all I'm looking for is a convenient location to connect into one of the reversing light feed circuits.(Black/Violet on left or Black/Blue on right according to diagram). Thanks again for your time and concern.

    Thanks for the update Stratman, sorry I couldn't help you out more as I've not had to do any wiring on one yet
