There isn't one for the F20/21 - it's part of the main loom.
You need to get the F10 version which has a retrofit kit available.

61122154696 - £210.60 is the cable from the module to the CIC and FEM
66212361833 - £429.26 is the retrofit kit - this DOES NOT include the module though which is another £330.

FYI - the camera is identical across all models
The F20/21 camera cable is available as a repair cable from BMW and is £52
F21 135i pre-lci, AW, 3dr, CR, HK and an ever increasing toy list :D

For sale - pm me for more detail!

All my wiring was on the left side of the car. I live in the beautiful land of OZ (Australia) and the steering wheel is where it should be on the right side of the car. Lol. I think left side driving cars would have the wiring on the left side too but im not so sure.

It will likely be on the right hand side of the car for left hand drive cars because the FEM_BODY is always on the passenger side. I guess it depends on where you mount the TRSVC module.

Fem right side camera module also right behind you?

Cable say they have to go through the left side to avoid interference positive battery cable that goes to the right

Camera module sits on top of the others on the LEFT behind the first aid trim.
Screws are already there you just need 2x nuts.

Cables are long enough to run down the left OR across the boot and down the right.

Remember - the retrofit kit is for the F10/F30 so the module is in a different place completely and the video cable takes a different route too as the camera is in the boot handle.

Far better to buy the cable.
Source he camera and module together as they're coded via s/n
Then get the correct video cable from BMW as its actually cheaper

I asked cord 61122183660 I have not yet received.

Thanks for the information exchange behind the left boot, and cable through the left side as well, thanks for the info you did not know me.


You reference the two nuts that are needed?
