    Suggestions on Volvo S40 05 Backup Cam

    The car is a Volvo S40 2005.

    Before I can really go any further, does anyone know what this is for?

    My car is very clean.




    Its in the back right bumper of the car. When I flip the thing open there is about a 2 inch depth square then looks like a little pipe inside, Im not sure where it leads. I was thinking it might be for the backup sensors which is an option. Maybe I can use it to wire the backup camera. There is no keyhole in the trunk and screws are the only thing near the back handle. If this can be used to wire a camera I then have to find a camera. If it can not im not really sure what Ill do.

    thats a spot to put a hook (i dont know if its called this way in english), when your car needs to be towed.

    Look in the spare tire compartment and u will see the hook i'm talking about.



    That's a pretty nice idea for the backup camera

    Btw i also have a s40

    Damn.. So much for that. mJrO are you installing a CarPC in your S40? If so, where are you mounting the LCD and/or car camera? Thats another one of my problems

    What is the part youre going to get from the dealership? That LCD placement is a pretty good idea although Im not sure I could pull it off.

    Where did you order it from? I wanted to order some spare parts too but I didnt know where I could. Do you have any other way I can talk to you? AIM/MSN etc?
