I have a 65 plate c4 exclusive and was wondering how easy it would be to fit and wire a reverse camera(original probably 2nd hand) is the wiring harness already there? Or is it more difficult than plug and play? Also is there different models for different years? Was looking at something like this https://rover.ebay.c...tm/362680683552

Thanks

The reversing camera was standard on the Exclusive+, so the wiring may not be there.

 

It may need to be enabled in the car's BSI.

 

Is your car a 5 seat or a Grand Pic

Thanks Gittos, yeah we nearly went for the exclusive+ with the camera as standard. Wondered if the wiring might be there as standard but the only spare loom I could find was as pictured below.

I can't really be of much help I'm afraid, try the C4 Owners site (link above), there are some very knowledgable people on there

Wiring a reversing camera into any car is fairly easy. However if you car has a touchscreen getting an after market to display on that would not be easy. Power for the camera can be taken from the reversing lights. If your lights are on the blog lid then the camera can be mounted by the number plate. If lights are in body cluster then mount camera under bumper. Run leads to front of car under carpets.

Thanks for that, was only going to install if I could fit an original and the loom was already there.
Fitted reverse sensors to my sons old car before so very similar.
Cheers.
