Installation information

Due to the large number of bumper trims, the installation of the Side View cannot be shown in detail for every equipment variant. The installation work is to be carried out in the same way.

Ensure that the cables and/or lines are not kinked or damaged as you install them in the car. Costs incurred as a result of this will not be reimbursed by BMW AG.

Additional cables/lines that you install must be secured with cable ties.

If the specified PIN chambers are occupied, bridges, double crimps or twin-lead terminals must be used.

 

All pictures show LHD cars; proceed accordingly on RHD cars.

In most cases, after installation of the retrofit, repairs or a software update of the car, an image

misalignment appears on the Control Display. To correct the image misalignment, the ACM Unit must be initialised.

The initialisation is to be carried out as detailed in the ACM installation instructions 01 29 0 420 167.

 

Ordering instructions

The rear view Y is not included in the Round Vision retrofit kit with 2 cameras and must be ordered separately (see EPC for part number and further details).
