    Yes its possible, i have done it to mine but its a bit off a git to install.
    Are you thinking a DIY installation or are you looking to get someone to do it for you ? Tailgate or barn door ? What parking sensor setup do you have ?

    Will need to confirm prices tomorrow as i have some numbers jotted down and im not sure if they are plus vat or including but camera and square mount is around £200
    Wiring kit is around £100 but will confirm later, budget around £300 for parts
    A square hole is required to be cut through the tailgate to flush mount the camera above numberplate, this is a metal surface so cutting tools and sealer/primer required when done
    Wiring needs to be run to dash to connect to rear of stereo so all roof panels and A pillar and bits of dash have to be removed to route cables
    The camera will need to be coded in with VCDS on completion and i have this info and wiring connections if required

    Thanks Pauly, although don't fancy cutting up the tailgate on a 42k van!

    It needs a 41/42mm square hole cut above number plate, its painful breaking out the power tools on a new vehicle but i used a fein saw with a medium sized bi metal blade and it did the trick ok, steady hand required though !

    You got any pics of it fitted? Gutted as it was only £180 extra from factory but just too late to add
