    Can anybody tell me whether or not this is a camera on the back of the rear view mirror on 18 reg Ateca 1.4 Xcellence. If so what's it for?

    Well camera if it's the lane assist you are looking for is in the windscreen. Sure that isn't a diode sensor but tricky to know what it does mind you.... hmmm although here they talk about front and back ones too work out the auto dimming to bright light

    Could be they now fit these rather than what I have... I'll have a look in the day light just to check.

    Compared with this I think you just got a big light sensor at the front.

    Cheers Tell. I was hoping it was the camera for the traffic sign recognition. But obviously not. Thanks for explaining my query with the video. You always come up with the goods.

    I always thought that was for light assist

    That's the V shaped one mounted on the rear of the windscreen glass. It takes in a V path so its called V shaped one on boards. I could photograph mine. The aperture is V shaped. The other camera is the high beam assist HBA that can / may be used. Not sure what that looks like or may be mine doubles up. I'd have to read more. HBA is the poor relative.

    Really need the build codes for people who want to do this mod to determine what is fitted. Obviously if bought with lane assist you got plus the potential for TLR. The coding is on the other thread.

    The lane assist camera looks like these on ebay stuck to the glass with the v shaped aperture
