My 4runner interior is in many pieces right now. Lots going on but I didnt even want to take pictures lol. The atoto sounds great paired with the stock amp and hopefully I have some great progress pics tomorrow. Gotta get this thing back on the road.

This took a little bit of figuring but by far was the easiest part. Getting into the rear door was as simple as removing the two plastic panels. Removing the bolt that holds the strap in, and then using a small plastic pry bar to pop the panel out. Then it slides up just a little and comes right out. You'll want to remove the little black caps that are coincidentally right where you need to get an extension in with a 10mm to undo the rear handle assembly. Make sure you unplug it and pull that through gently. After that you will have the part in your hands and can easily start working on the tougher part. You don't have to remove the light but I was figuring out how to get everything off and where the wires went through for the license plate lights.

This is what the tailgate looks like with the rear handle removed. The far right hole is for the lock.....so don't reinstall the grommet there.



This is the handle assembly. It is all one piece except for the lock which pokes through and mounts from the back side of the door. All of the nuts are 10mm so find wherever that devil is hiding if you're trying to do this.




Next you will have to gently cut into the plug that goes through the tailgate. Now the wires have their own run and are sealed so you can't fit any other wires through. I simply cut a place for the new ones to lie.






Use a little heat to melt the rubber back around the wire gland and then tape liberally. This area sees a lot of water so you don't want any getting into the interior of the rear door. Then reinstall.



This is how it should look when you get everything completed and reinstall your license plate. Here is a link to the camera that I got. It has a small LED light surround for backing up at night. All of these cameras are pretty much wired up the same. I can't confirm but it might even work with the stock system.

Amazon.com: Backup Camera, 175o Wide Angle Hidden License Plate Easy Install HD Rear View Back Up Waterproof Cam with 12 LED Colorful Nigh Vision (License Plate Camera): Car Electronics




Next part will be the snaking of the wires and the consequences of not getting it right.

Small update:

The steering wheel controls now work and the stereo that fits the dash is now in as well. The other one is going back. That radio surround fit like crap.

Only problem is there is a difference between the radio bezels much to my chagrin. I'll have to find one for the navigation fitting but all in all I am very pleased with the atoto a6. The functionality is good and it was easy enough to hook up.

Still chasing problems on the backup camera. Everything in my wiring is good so next time I get to open up the rear door again I'll be checking the camera.
