    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

    Hi do you have to have PDC fitted to the vehicle to upgrade to a reverse camera and have it as per factory? I am thinking of buying a shuttle and I don't think it has front and rear parking a sensors. It does however have front sensors for active cruise control that automatically brakes the vehicle up to 90mph if you're too close.

    No PDC is not required, camera just needs to be cut in, wires run in and connected and it works but does require coding/programming to activate

    Guidance lines on my T6 OE rear camera are static, won't turn with the steering input of the vehicle, so not sure what your on about @Andrew Todd ?

    IMG_6462.JPG On my Q7 as you turned the wheel the guidance lines moved to show you direction of travel, just like the attached image. Do the T6 cameras not do the same?
