Hi Greglee

The black can probably just go to chassis, but the "red" as you put it will come from the Central junction box, and go to the rear lights, the obvious place to pick this up is at one of the rear lights, unless you have the wiring diagrams and can find the other end near the central junction box.

So does this replace the existing mirror, and why does it need reverse? What model is it?

Hi Phil ,
the Dashcam mirror is a Mayogo A80 from Amazon yes it fits over the excisting mirror then the back camera i have fitted over the number plate like you stated the black is okay to the Chassis the red has to be fitted to the positive pole of the reversing light to enable it to go into mode whenyou reverse also will then show parking lines and switch reverse lamps on the rear camera .So yes i need to find the wiring diagrams somewhere for the lights all fun ..

You're in luck the reverse lights are still on a normal Fuse. Mine is Passenger Box 12P, but yours will be different, but just look at the fuse box cover behind the glove box you should be able to tap the reverse light fuse (If MY16 still has that) will be in the handbook too.

Had it wired straight into the reverse light on Passanger side rear light was pretty straightforward .
