2017 Fuse Backup Camera

Here is a simple fix for the clearance problem limiting the Backup Camera from being adjusted upward.

You will need a 3/32 inch hex wrench. Preferably one with the “ball end”.

Remove all screws from both sides of the camera.

Reposition the camera so that when a screw is placed in the middle hole on the bracket (the pivot hole) it will thread into the upper hole on the camera. Perform on both sides and tighten finger tight.
Thread a screw through the lower arc hole of the bracket into the middle hole of the camera. Perform on both sides.

Adjust camera to angle that makes you happy. Tighten screws. Don’t overdo it and strip the holes in the camera. You only get one screw up, pun intended.

On my RV i now have equal space above and below the camera and could adjust it for racoon hunting if I wanted. I set mine so that I can see everything from 20’ down to 2’ from the bumper. I wanted to see what’s behind me on the road more than what’s close on parking. I have a mobile remote obstacle detection system on my rig. (Wife yells when I get too close to things.)
