That area where I fixed the reverse module is not the factory location, it should be further forward just behind the seat but same side of the car, in order to get access to it you need to remove the trim from left side

Well that was a pain in the ........
Ok so going on vcds that the module is kaput I have finally got it removed.
I have it on good authority from the neighbour that seeing me sat in the spare wheel well is hilarious...... was tempted to shove a screwdriver up his nose as I think that would be quite funny after getting that left side trim Out!
Now to try and get a second hand unit, one theif on eBay wants £250!!
Think il be going stateside as the are cheaper....

did you have any issue with component protection?
I dont mind ordering a second hand unit but I dont then want to have to go to the main dealer for it to be unlocked to my motor.
