    OK Thanks for the reassurance, I will keep it as it is so I dont have to get the carpet up again. Yes its the blue/yellow wire off the auto selector. Camera works great. Thanks.

    Anyone know where abouts this wire would be on manual - I'm going to be installing a reverse camera soon

    This isn't my car, it's how my car see's itself in it's own head

    The reversing light relay is in the E-Box in the engine compt. Do you know what engine code your car is?

    was hoping there was something inside the car near the back seats as thats where my lead currently is for switching the monitor to reverse camera input.

    could wire it to the reverse light but that means wiring into the boot lid rather than somewhere inside the boot area - might just pull the trim out and trace the cable into the boot area.

    don't know my engine code - the car is E46 320d 2003 if that helps
