TBH Kevin I can't fully remember & don't have the car now but you certainly don't have to do anything like remove the glovebox.

I think possibly you just remove the cover in the footwell under the glovebox and all should be clear, but maybe someone who still has a DS could confirm

Couldn't see it, Will have another look around. Hopefully, someone else might be able to shed some light on it

Thanks for your help

Regards

I'm not sure how relevant that this is, but to get to the screw in question for my PowerMagic Pro unit, I disassembled the entire glovebox, and drilled a small hole in the plastic surround to feed the cable(s) through. It now sits snugly at the top of the fuse box which is easily accessible should I need to access it (unlikely)

I couldn't work out how to access the screw in question as I couldn't even find it. Thought the only way would be to take the glovebox out.

I definitely did not take the glove box out, that I am sure of.

Maybe I released the tabs either side of the glovebox to allow it to drop further, which also gives better access to the fuse box.

My dashcam is now all hard wired and working. Turns out my first cable was faulty.

I didn't need to remove the glove box, the torx bolt on the glove box hinge is fine as an earthing point.

I tucked the 'spare' cable and voltage regulator behind the carpet on top left of footwell.

This has been a great help. But did anyone find out the appropriate fuse to use for a 17/18 model which is only used when the ignition is on? I have attached to the Sunscreen fuse on my HSE but it appears to be charging all the time.
Thanks.
Fuse 53 is still the one to use. Remember that the vehicle wakes up when unlocked therefore the camera will start recording. The vehicle will shut down in a couple of minutes.

Photos of the MY18 fuse box.
how can we connect the camera to have it always on ? so we can take advantage of those dashcam that has a parking mode.

Thanks for your excellent post, fitted a dashcam this morning. Being forearmed with fuse number and cable route made life so much easier.

This is an excellent guide on installing dash cam.

I am unfortunately having a problem with mine.

It's hardwired to fuse 52 at the moment (I have tried a few others such as vanity light fuse)

My dash cam keeps turning off and then back on when engine is on stop start .

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not sure of other fuses to use as the dash cam may drain battery when engine is off.

Hi. That's great on the hardwired dashcam. Going to do mine this weekend too, but can I ask where you put the negative lead to?
Thanks

I connected mine using a spade terminal to the screw for the footwell light
