This might help someone else as I made this stupid mistake. If your flip camera is coming out but not going in even after 15 seconds, make sure this is how you have made the connection. The timer module that pushes the camera inside is in the VW logo base holding the camera. If you dissamble the camera from this base, the Motor will still push it out but it won't go in and you might end up thinking there is something wrong with the camera motor. Also this is how the connection needs to be done.

Got the camera installed on my Polo 1.5 TDI Highline which had the RCD 330 Plus. Below are few photos. Here are few things I noticed:

1. The HU keeps showing the video for about 10 seconds even after disengaging reverse gear.

2. After 15 seconds, the camera pops back in.

3. You cannot open boot if the reverse gear is engaged​. So if someone needs to get something quickly from the boot, you will have to disengage reverse gear and then they will have to wait for 15 seconds for camera to go back in. Not a very big thing but just something I noticed.

I followed all the instructions mentioned by graaja in this DIY during the installation and got the adapter plate laser cut right before the camera arrived using the AutoCad file he has provided. So a big thanks to graaja for that . Now just the water draining part is left which I will carry out on coming weekend.

Awesome! Congratulations on the successful install of the camera. I am glad that you were able to resolve all the issues you faced during the installation and made it a success. Good luck with the drain pipe installation as well

Remember to test if there is a leak in the drain pipe attachment and seal it with glue if required.

H Graaja,

I have received the adaptor plate from the fabricator. Thanks a lot for sharing the contact details. Got everything for the install including fuse tap connectors as suggested by you. However, the camera is stuck in Kolkata since 05/05/2017 . Lodged a complaint with India post. Hopefully, I should get it.

I can totally understand the frustration.

A couple of times when a package was stuck at customs while handled by India Post, I had sent an email to the customs department (email provided by India Posts after booking a complaint with them first) with an explanation of what the item is and what is the value and they usually released it within a couple of days.

As you have already booked a complaint with India Post, it should get released soon.

Thanks a lot.

Coincidentally, got a letter from the Customs today, asking for the invoice and remittance proof. Mailed them all the required details. Things should move now.
