    best guess would be under the trim panels behind the boot, down the pillar (or through boot and under seats) and along the footwell trims

    have you thought about a wireless one?

    can try behind/at the side of the rear seats, if not try following the wiring through the the rubber tube that links the cables front and rear that you see when the tailgate is open

    Just fitted a reversing/rear view camera. Removed the tailgate inner trim and and the two side trims, surprisingly easy to thread through, when they are removed.
