Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

Hello . I have a 2015 Aygo mk2 and looking to install a reverse camera. Behind my touchscreen radio is the Camera wires as when i select R the screen turns Blank. I wondering as the wires are at the front of car in the Loom. Will the wire plug be at the Rear of the car tucked away somewhere ready for camera to be plugged into. If so roughly where will it be placed. Thank you

Found this on google hope it helps I would imagine that if you have found the wires behind the head unit that they will exit on the hatch probably near the number plate, you will have to remove the trim that covers the inside of the hatch to find out, Toyota may even do an aftermarket kit ask your local dealer.

Hi Paul,

Just done this on my Mk 1, which I appreciate has (or in my case HAD) a different head unit.

The Mk2 appears to have a 4/6 pin connector block on the back of the head unit AND the “factory fit” camera.  So, it the wires are pre fitted in the boot area, then you could buy a factory fit/2nd hand factory fit camera and off you go.

If the existing wiring does not contain the connector block, then I would guess it starts getting (relatively) expensive.  The cameras alone are going for about £50 on eBay (2nd hand), compared to about £10-£15 for a new “standard” one without the block.

So if the block in the boot isn’t there, you’d probably be looking at (if keeping existing head unit), wiring from boot to head unit, camera with connector block.  Starts getting expensive.....

If looking to replace the head unit (I put in a Sony unit), then now may well be a good time to do it (depends on budget of course)?

When we ordered our Aygo and specified the X-touch multimedia unit as part of the order, the car had the rear diffuser replaced (gloss black in place of matt black) - presumably as that had the housing for the rear camera.

Another option, I fitted reverse camera to our Peugeot 108 using a camera kit integrated into a number plate lens. I bought an adapter lead that plugs into back of touchscreen from Car Solutions and then a reverse camera kit from AliExpress and some additional wiring all for about £35. While I was doing it I did notice a wiring plug behind the bumper between bumper and metal skin/crash structure., I suspected that was the correct plug for a pukka reverse camera, but as 2nd hand /scrappy reverse cameras were going for about £60-£70 at the time, I chose the car solutions and AliExpress camera route as someone else had done it, so I knew it worked and it was half the price and no drilling holes in bumpers/trim etc.  It was all fairly plug n play the only slight problem was the number plate light holder with camera needed modifying to allow the standard number plate bulb holder to fit, but quick go with my hobby tool sorted it.
