« on: July 22, 2018, 10:29:44 PM »
I'm looking to power my reverse cam from the reverse light wire. The difficulty I'm having is there is 3 wires Grey/White Black/Blue and Brown I've read on topics from people fitting tow bars the reverse wire is the Black/Blue so I'll be connect the red positive wire to this but I don't know where to connect the Black Ground wire to any help would be great thanks

Any brown wire is an earth.

If you connect it to the nearside rear light unit there is an earth stud just by the light unit.

Is this the stud circled in green?

No that’s not the one I was thinking off mine was to right of that slightly behind the 1/4 trim. However that stud should be fine to connect an earth to just make sure any paint on panel is not insulating it as I think that stud is what holds light unit in so the stud itself won’t be earthed.
