I,m sure folk will check first, but just in case.
Be careful when routing wiring under roof lining so as not to interfere with the passenger airbag which is in there somewhere.
Fitting the DashCam will be my first job after collecting my new Cactus at the end of the month.
24 hours in a day, 24 Beers in a case. Coincidence.......I think not.

Some piccies...


I spotted a trackable there! No-one mention *muggles*

Bit late, I know but only just got my Cactus and was reading up about wiring in a dash cam.

Thanks for the photos and info.

Ha... Well spotted, but get this... I was driving down the A1 in traffic last month, minding my own business, when a 4x4 pulls alongside and the passenger winds down the window and shouts over to me... I open my window and he asked me for the tracking number! Just to be clear, there are no external details, just the TB in the mirror that he had spotted! Crazy! I shouted over the code and he logged it to!

Stay cool,

Jono

OK I've got to know!

What's TB and trackable refer to?

Thanks!

Jono's picture showing the view looking out of the windscreen includes donkeys with a dangling TB tag - magnify the view and you'll see it clearly.

This has reminded me that I've now fitted the rear camera - here's some pics - free from any danglies for those that dis'd the Donkeys :?

cabling is fed through the passenger side umbilical and out the access grommet used for access to the spoiler bolts.

Good coverage from the rear camera, it's within the sweep of the rear wash/wipe and so doesn't muck up like the reversing camera! Why Citroen didn't put theirs within the rear window surround to utilise this also is beyond me.

Stay cool,

Jono.

given that I've got a geocashing account and didn't know about TB I'm now feeling suitably stupid. :oops:

thanks :lol:

I doubt that you're more stupid than me - I used to think that picking up a Travel Bug was something that one experienced after travelling abroad and eating foreign food...
And to others it means the desire to travel to exotic places.

Going all the way back to the start of this post, I've just picked up a 15 plate Cactus 1.2 and an looking to transplant my dash cam from my previous motor. I am unsure as to how physical I need to be to remove the plastic cover from below the globe box to access the fuses. Most of the clips are coming out ok but a couple are very reluctant and I don't want to cause any damage.

Is there a secret to gaining access to these fuses?
