E46 Reverse Light wiring after manual swap

Recommended Posts

I've trawled the internet without much luck - can anyone clearly explain how to wire in the e46 reverse lights after a manual swap?

I've sourced a Bosch connector, soldered on 1m of wire on both tails, attached to the reverse switch on the gearbox, threaded up into the cabin.

Then following some guidance online from an E36 (I have E46) I believe my next steps are to located the plug that used to be in the shifter, find the Blue/Yellow and White/Green wires and attach them to the new tails leading back to the reverse switch on the gearbox.

I realise silly to assume E36 and E46 are the same, so thought I'd check here first.

Thanks

Awesome thanks Brent, I wondered if that would be easier. I'll wire that up today :)
