Cheers.

Have drilled the hole, got the cable through into the tailgate space and remounted the number plate ok.

Not sure how I'm going to get the wires up to the top of the lid (or down from the top)... I'm guessing possibly a unravelled coat hanger with the cable taped on, might suffice, as once at the side of the glass there appears no access.

Is there an easy way to feed the cable through the cable rubber boot on left (by untaping the wires possibly) as it seems sealed??

Then its hunt the reverse light feed lol. Just taking my time with this one so as not to cock it up!

I pulled off both ends of the tailgate rubber boot and fed only the connector through ..this was in my case a 6mm like a mini din and when pushed through could be connected to the RCA/phono. I used  a coat hanger with a rounded end  so  not to damage the boot

I used a camera attached to a number plate surround, I had to drill a larger hole to get the sealed camera connections through . But this was behind the plate surround so grommet fitted and not seen...............best of luck with the cabling through the tailgate rubber grommets it's a pai n in the butt πŸ‘ΉπŸ‘ΊπŸ˜‘

Have the cable through to where it needs to be now. For future people, a bicycle inner brake cable works wonders (have you tried to find metal coathangers nowadays?!)

Just need help now with the reverse wire, and an earth. I'm guessing that I'll need to look at the wiring in the left of the picture, which also appears to include the boot light. I can't for the life of me remove this trim to get better access (I've removed the four visible torx screws but appear s to be part of the rear seat moulding too?)

Any help on this last hurdle?

Sounds like you have same setup as me (number plate surround)... as just posted, managed the cable through the rubber boot with the help of a bicycle inner brake cable :)

You seem to have a wiring loom plug and socket, don't remember that on mine ( what year is yours ) my loom was straight across very tight position . I soldered my connection and heat shrinked the insulation. Had to drill a small hole on the metal angle for earth connection . Good luck .

Anyone help with the wire colour? Its not of the ones in the plug in the photo as after unplugging it, the reverse light is still working. I have access to the other wiring loom going through, but without knowing the colour I'm a bit screwed. Someone in another thread mentioned mauve and white (I think) but assuming mauve is brown, I don't think I have a mauve and white

Mauve is a purple colour , suppose it could be on later or other models the wiring loom may have altered. But on mine it is mauve and white.
