Finally got my Nextbase front and rear cams installed yesterday by a local autoelectrician, they hardwired the cams through a spare fuse in the fusebox.

Asked them to photograph the fusebox which they did and I am waiting for them to email the pics, will post it when they arrive.

While talking to them they said that all wiring must not crossover any airbags. This is especially true for the power cable, if it crosses over the A pillar airbag when the airbags deploy the force will rip the front cam off the windscreen and is liable to cause serious injury.

Correct, you need to be careful with the A pillar wiring. Mine is up the gap between the pillar and the door rubber.

Never poke it behind the plastic A pillar cover.
Let's be careful out there!

If you go back to post #29, page 2, by steve_m can you get a shot of the connector socket marked 'A', front on.

If I can get a good shot of the 4 pin connector I can see if the third party option connector supplier has them.

The second image is the option connector that I described in my previous posts.

Ah, right, couldn't make out the pins.

I think he'll want a square on shot showing them. I've asked him exactly what he wants as he just said it wasn't what he needed. Not exactly a helpful reply from him.

Watch this space ......

I've had a closer look at the suppliers website.

I 'think' it has to be one of these but who knows which one ? :

What you've found isn't the option connector but some small shielded crimp connectors, as I mentioned in a possible solution higher up..

You can make them yourself.
