Remote activated camera's, applied to the 2004 ZR
Opposed to using the supplied windscreen camera mount, an alloy support bracket was created for the DVR 207 shown located above right of rear view mirror, with power cable concealed.
In 2014 an upgrade to the camera system for the MG with front and rear fitted Mobius cameras had now been fully installed, videos are not currently available from this page. The cameras are much smaller than the 207, about the size of a 'tic tac' box, although with no screen to assist with the camera's set up of the 'road view' this is done through trial and error. Having no screen makes the unit more compact, discreet and a secure option. Shown above the old DVR 207 just prior to being replaced with the Mobius wide angle dashcam.
Configuration of the parameters, is achieved with using the mobius specific set-up programme. To power up the cameras, a dashboard located button switch will activate each of the cameras simultaneuosly, power is supplied using dual USB cables. Also includes the option to be left active in parking mode, the 16gb micro sd cards I have installed in the cameras, are sufficient to review any incidents which may occur on a dailly basis, or to just capture any scenic runs. the mobius wide angle lens along with stunning picture quality creates perfect video's for these events.
Quick access to the horns, is to have the steering on full lock, and pull back the wheel arch liner, but working in a tight space to do a proper job is always going to be difficult, Taking into account, that the front bumper is not generally removed on a regular basis, so some foreward planning of what other basic maintenance could also be include along with fitting of the new horns was under consideration.
These were to include removal, and a clean out of the wind screen washer tank, bonnet locking mechanism being cleaned and greased, and giving a good access to soft brush the radiator fins. So the front bumper was removed for these above projects.
Bumper to wing are 4 x10mm bolts, 2 at each side, accessed by pulling back the wheel arch liners, for this it will require having the steering on full alternate lock, these 4 bolts are not the easiest to remove, and will be corroded with the possibilty of having to replace them, along the bottom edge 3 x 10mm bolts in the middle with 6 cross head screws, 3 located at each corner, the leading edge are 5 x 10mm bolts.
Fitting the horns was a straight foreward swop, especially with the front bumper out of the way. The horn bracket and horn terminals being very corroded from where its been located over the years, so this was replaced with one supplied in the fitting kit.
Several years later, and again with badly corroded terminals and one horn that had just simply packed up from being in this location and open to all the elements. So installed a brand new set as shown. now with easier and quicker access to replace a faulty unit.
