    Hi all just bought a reversing camera kit from Mercedes dealer for £276 to fit in 2014 Mercedes E Class the parts included in the kit are as below

    BOOT TRIM: A2129054305
    CAMERA: A0008201203
    CABLE with Fakra Connecter: PART NO A2124407434
    CABLE: PART NO A2124405240 LOOKS THE SAME AS ONES BELOW
    CABLE: PART NO A2124404640

    I'm confused about the last 2 cable packs as they look the same but got different part number and where to connect one end as one end can be connected to camera.
    Brown wire looks like the ground wire.

    Please help me out any responses will be much appreciated, 2i have attached all the pictures.

    Having fitted a few of these its no simple job and you may need some extra parts, and you definitely need online Xentry to make it work properly

    It depends on what's in your car
    You are not right, that's just one of the things that initial startup does as same camera used in different models
