In order to prevent racketeer, more and more people will install dash cam once they bought a car. But some people consider that it is difficult to install the dash camera because they need to take apart many things. Actually, the easiest way is to hide plumb wire by trim removal tool. Therefore, installing dash cam by yourself is possible. Let’s try it out with the following steps.
The best location is between the rear-view mirror and front windshield. on the one hand, the wide angle is bigger, on the other hand, the effect on our vision is minimal. but please note that if it is too close to rear-view mirror, it may influence the wide angle of the rear-view mirror.
In this method, you only need to use three tools，trim removal tool,double-side tape,3M . You can use the trim removal tool to easily put the cable in car plaque . of course, your hands can take the place of the tool if you are strong . and the cable adhered with the help of the double-sided tape, you must fix the dash cam with 3M.
Firstly, you should figure out how to arrange cable and hide it possibly. According to your judgment, it directly determines whether it is simple and beautiful. Secondly, checking the location of the cable. there are two part of the interior material, including soft and hard. You only need to lightly press the cable, but you should fit it in with the trim removal tool on hard.
Notice , i suggest the cable avoid the location of the Air curtain bounce off for the car equipped with side air curtain . this way can reduce influence when the air curtain works.
We recommend the cable to begin with the USB of dash cam .in other words, we will set the cable on the roof. we directly set the cable into the space between the roof panel and the glass .using trim removal tool will make it more perfect and easy.
Look at the actual situation when the cable through the A-pillar. we should take care of our strength while we install it for the car equipped with A-pillar side curtain airbag, otherwise, the plaque is destroyed. Without A pillar side curtain airbag, we set it indirectly. we did show the method using the car without A pillar side curtain airbag.
After the above steps, I have some trouble the cable can’t through Glove box because some plaque is sealed. So, opening the door sealing strip, we may be able to set the cable in.
When the cable goes through the center of the right front door pedal that is high and hard plastic hardness, we need to use the trim removal tool to find out the gap.
Next, you have two choices to go on . the cable directly across the glove box, fix it and reach cigarette lighter.
I choose another easy way. the cable across the glove box, and then reaches the cigarette lighter. it also looks beautiful.
Due to hard and good sealing plaque and the narrow space, it has a bit of trouble to install the cable. I spent more time when the cable across the glove box because the cigarette lighter got stock in the glove box positioning rod.
I found that there is an exposed cable outside if you don’t modify when the cable comes in the glove box.
Finally, you can confirm dash cam normal working after energizing the lamplighter. You successfully installed dash cam.
