Im still waiting for the answer to the 2012 Camaro installation of the rear view mirror DIY... has anyone figured out how to get switched power from the 2012 rear view mirror? I want to use an invisicord...

do both of those options give you switched power?

so are you getting switched power from the pink cable you used in the overhead bezel?

Hi. I just bought a new 2012 Camaro and think I want to do this. Were you able to get the mirror tap to work on this model year? Thanks.

I never could find a switched wire on my 2012 vert. Don't think anyone on C5 has either, but could be wrong. I ended up buying a hardware cord from Escort and running down the pillar to the fuse box.

Btw - which Camaro did you get? Post some pics!

Hey. It's looking like the mirror thing won't work, but I've come up with another idea. Mine has a sunroof with the switch up there. It is a 12v ignition on circuit. I'm thinking about tapping that one. Do you or anyone on this thread have experience with this?

2012 Camaro 2LT RS, Ashen Grey Metallic, silver/black leather, sunroof, 6-speed manual, Corsa Cat-Back Exhaust. I just graduated college so it's my graduation present to myself. It's truly a thrill to drive.

Can't see them, but sounds like he is mounting it by the mirror you want them as low as you can get them, they are aiming for your light and license plates

The OP took the pics down for some reason. We really need someone else to do a DIY on this again since it appears that it only covers the '10 MY and no longer has pics.

This piece is held in place with four clips. This does require some targeted pressure to remove...don't tug on the edges...reach inside the 'hole' you made by removing the light and feel where the clips are and you'll be fine. Pull all four clips out and the piece comes out with wires attached. The pics below will show you what the clips look like and where they are.



I'm having problems with this step. For one, I can only find 2 of the clips. And also, the two I do find (both closer to the rear vs. the front of the 'hole') I can't figure out how to get my hand or whatever up there to press the clip together to remove it anyway..

any tips?
