Installation of a rear view camera on Lada Granta, Priora and Kalina
It’s hard to imagine a modern car without a rear view camera. If your car has this option from the factory, then you can install the camera yourself. Lux configurations of Lada Granta, Kalina 2, Priora cars have similar multimedia systems (MMS), so the process of connecting and setting up the camera is identical. During the installation of the camera, there may be differences depending on the type of body (hatchback, station wagon, sedan, liftback), but they are insignificant.

- Mini ISO connector (blue shoe and cinch).
- Several meters of wire.
Most often, a rear–view camera is placed above the license plate (on an overlay called a “saber”). Such an arrangement The most successful from the point of view of the view, the camera is not striking and there is no need to remove the bumper. First, remove the trunk lid trim, and then the saber, which is held by 6 M8 screws.
Determine the best location for the camera and drill a hole there. Attaching the accessory from the back with a nut.
We lay the wires from the camera into the trunk through regular corrugations.
It is more convenient to pull the wiring into the front of the car under the headlining rubber seal. Then, under the dashboard, we drag it to the back of the radio. To remove the MMC, you will first need to dismantle the panel cladding.
