Yes that’s the camera wires do not touch the little red wire by yellow connector not needed

How can this red wire reach the glove box?
Does the yellow connector plug in anywhere ?

Not quite long enough I used a bit extra wire to reach - the red goes to the blue wire black to the earth point as shown in guide - yellow plug goes to the yellow rear camera input

Just to add one more point.
If you are getting very faint lines on your picture it is caused by interference.
Just add a ground isolating box to your wires. Works a treat and nice clear picture now.
You’ll need 2 connectors aswell.

Daz, with regards to the rubber bung to the left of the bumper, did you remove it to feed the wires through it or just squeeze them through while it's still attached?

I just got a sharp knife and make a little slit in it and pushed wire through.
