QA Questionsrear door gets heavier since the reverse camera is installed
ehsan asked 4 months ago

Hi there,
 
I received and installed my camera and I’m so happy with that.
The only problem is I think as the camera body is a bit heavier than the OEM flip handle and my rear door struggles to open and a bit heavy when closing that.
Does anyone else has a similar issue and do you know any solution for this problem?
 
Thanks

Hello,
The heavy closing sound of the trunk has nothing to do with the flip camera itself. Did you know that the flip camera is only connected to the electronic switch of the trunk, it will not affect the function of the mechanical part of the trunk.
If anything has to be changed, the flip camera itself has a weight of 1.4 kg, which increases the weight of the entire trunk cover, so you may feel that the sound of closing the door is heavy, and you need to use less than in the past. Strength, don’t be too motivated to close it, or if you replace the valve levers of the two trunks, the new levers will have more powerful support, which will relatively reduce the heaviness of closing the door.
Another possibility is that your trunk liner cover has not been restored to its original installation position, which has interfered with the closing of the trunk.
