Hey Ofer, Out of curiosity could I use a 2012 bumper and rear backup camera instead of replacing my wreaked one with a 2010 bumper and cutting a hole again?

I ordered a 2012 Camera and bracket for my 2011 and used Ofer's harness to connect it to a Pioneer head unit.

Removing the bumper is a bit of a pain (by myself) and dremel'ing a hole for the 2012 camera bracket is a little delicate but it turned out quite nice:





With some trial and error, I first made a template with cardboard that the 2012 camera bracket would fit into. Then I traced the outline of the template onto the bumper with a pencil and cut it out with a dremel:



Finished installation of the camera/bracket into the bumper:

Ofer, I developed a slight problem I'm hoping you can solve for me. I installed the kit this weekend and was fine. On Sunday night, I drove the car to work and it sat out overnight....now on Monday morning there is a vertical line directly down the middle of the screen. Its like an interference/electrical noise but not wavey......just a straight line. PM me if you want me to send you a picture via your email

sorry for the delay, the battery was dead in the camera. I'm uploading two pictures I just took (both closeups).... kinda fuzzy but still shows the line that I talked about.

I get that at times when it's really sunny and the sun is directly towards the camera. Do you also get it in in direct light and shade?

How come no one ever said that the sunlight may cause this artifact? Would have saved me time and effort taking half of it in and out. It just may be the sunlight cause it comes and goes. Anyways, Ofer is being great and helping me thru this......gonna try another mirror and harness just to be safe.

Out of curiosity have you ever used a Camera before? Every camera will do this because of the shape of the lens....

In this pic you see the camera and bracket, This is the parts you ordered.





In this Pic is the second bracket you need to hold the camera in place.


I found your website with the kit but do you sale it with the oem camera and bezel trim piece with bracket?

Just got my mirror & harness and I'm having a bit of a problem with the install (I already PM'd Ofer about it, just wanted to throw it out there for general opinions). While trying to bench-test, there is NO power coming through to the mirror. I have a 2011 1LT/RS...the harness fits, but nothing lights up...car on, in reverse, etc. The guy who's helping me install it even attached it to his 2010 SS to try it out, and he can't get power either. The OnStar comes on right away on our stock mirrors, but not the new one. So I'm thinking possibly some wires got crossed, possibly just a bad harness? Anyone have any ideas?

How exactly are you bench testing? I remember I tried bench testing mine and it did not work. I tried it in my garage hooked up to a battery. I contacted Ofer about the problem and he told me it wouldn't work that way. Everything needs to be hooked up to the car in order for it to work. So if you're using an external power source, use the cars' instead.

Yeah, tried that. Turned the car on, put it in reverse, nothing. We've been following the DIY to the letter...

I got the 2012 Camera and bracket today (for my 2010). I was just curious if anyone has a picture of how the bracket attaches to the camera when installed in the bumper. I only see pics of it finished from the outside, or not installed. Maybe it is more apparent once I have my bumper off - but I have not done that yet.

I must be looking at something wrong because I keep flipping these pieces around and just can't picture it . I just want to be sure before I go cutting my bumper

If nothing else I can try to catch 2SSRS at the Fest I suppose, I live nearby.

Thanks!

Mine was all together. I guess you have a different camera.
