Reverse camera cable route 5dr

Hi, has anyone come up with a good route for wiring a reverse camera in a 5 door?

Searched about and can only see 3 dr routes which go through the rear speaker area into the boot lid grommet.

I've got my cable up to the back seat and can't see a great route and the trim is very unmoveable around here.

Thinking I might need to go up the door seal to where the headlining meets the back pillar trim but worried about interfering with the side curtain airbag deployment.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for that, had seen that one but didn't go right through till the section about 5 door!

Anyway managed that bit and got through the rubber grommet tube thingy eventually but having a mare getting the cable through the tailgate and while working on that I noticed (as per the thread you linked) I'd wrapped the cable round the gas strut so had to remove the cable again and have now managed to burst the cable!

So given up now as it's dark and freezing so off to work out how to fix the cable and may get my local place to price up finishing it for me.

On the plus side I've got a nice new Kenwood DDX-5016DAB all wired up and working, just unplugged the reverse power feed from the options connector for now till I get things sorted.

Everything else is pretty much done apart from getting through the tailgate then actually securing the camera in place. Headunit and camera power including reverse switch to HU all done that's what makes the split cable a nightmare.

What did you use to get the cable through the tailgate? A bit of 3 core cable or coax?

Something like that but I spliced cable so it can easily go thro grommet. Connector it self for camera couldn't get thro anyway I tried. I droped cable in from light down to gromment with opened tailgate.

Cheers I'll give it a go later in the week, sure I have some household electrical cable somewhere.
Luckily the camera I'm using (kenwood cmos 230) has a mini connector on the cable that then connects to the camera so that fitted through the grommet ok (till I broke the cable &#128544

I found silicone spray helped get the connector thru the tailgate grommet. It wouldn't budge without a liberal dousing.

And it's finally done! Using piece of household electrical cable made feeding through the tailgate simple.

I now have a working reverse camera and even had time to add a Kenwood KCA WL100 which allows me to mirror my phone screen on the double din

Just need to hope for some good weather tomorrow so I can give the car a bit of a clean and finally get some pics up.

Thank for the help in this thread much appreciated.
