So I'm waiting for my dash kit and wiring to arrive to install the my head unit, but I decided to start installing some of the extras. First up is my rearview camera. I was able to mount the camera and run the wire through the rear door, but i'm having trouble running the wire up the door and through the car. Has anyone done this? I tried feeding some thick wire though it to pull the camera wire through, but it got stuck some where and I got frustrated. Any ideas?

Don't know where getting stuck, but you can go buy an electricians cable snake. Use it and return it, makes life easier.

When rear door do you mean the hatch door?

i did this, started at the boot at top of hatch and fished a thicker wire down and cought it along the passenger side where there is a open space at the bottom of hatch. it took about 30-45 min and was a pain but it is posible.

Yeah, if no cable snake. Use a second person, to catch it at the other opening.

I'm going to try tomorrow with some solid wire vs stranded. At least if i hit something i'll know exactly what the deal is.
