Hi Dirty Den,Hi blei245,
I have all the Ford part numbers etc. to fit a camera to the CMAX Grand, latest shape...The camera and camera loom just plugs into the existing cars wiring loom and no other alterations are needed. The camera option needs to be enabled in the Sync 2, via the cars diagnostic port. I did write a procedure with pictures, but I think all the pictures are too large in size. The first thing is to look behind the panel on the right hand side of the boot. If you have the plug in the picture sitting there, then I would think it is possible to add the camera. The minimum cost is around £330 for just the Ford parts and if you can do the job yourself.
These parts are special order and hence Ford don't like taking them back. So please check for the cable in the picture above and that your car is the same. It maybe helpful if you know someone in the trade who can get you a discount as well.
1904416 - parking camera - £180.20
1945683 - wiring assembly (runs down righthand side of tailgate and replaces the existing loom on this side) - £38.40
1899516 - switch assembly (a short cable that connects the camera to the loom above. This was a real pig to find) - £85.61 (I received a small discount on this part)
1931034 - camera bracket (this fits the camera to the panel) -£8.27
The camera fits under the Ford badge on the panel above the number plate. The panel is already marked on the backside with the camera position. This will need carefully cutting out or I can supply the part number for the Ford panel already with the hole. However this is just primed and will also need painting.
I would get the parts, program the cars computer and check the camera works first, before stripping the tailgate.
Thanks for the info Dirty Den, i will have another good look when i get chance, cheersHi Tebba,
I am surprised it is not there, but Ford have another dirty trick they play. It maybe taped back on the loom somewhere behind the removable panel. Have a look around and see if you can find it.
