Once I sanded down the back of the camera/led I also had to use two small screws to hold it in place. A bit of a pain but nice once u get there.

Thanks to your instructions, I succeeded to remove the trunk trim and install finally the reverse camera ! It's working really good. I'm happy.

I also installed the Alpine KCA-420v, in order to use multiple video sources.
for my case, there is:
source#1 : Alpine DHA-S690 6 DVD changer (to watch dvd/divx)
source#2 : i-phone/i-pod source, apple cable is in the glovebox.
source#3 : reverse camera

Thanks a lot for your reading.
