    I connected mine to the radio feed I think it's the red wire (the one switched by the ignition). You should be able to feed the wires up behind the glove box without removing anything (you can on an X250) then drop the radio out to connect it. I also changed my radio over to the leisure battery .

    you dont have to get your 12v ign live from the actual fuse box, just find a supply that is nearer and put in your own in line fuse . i have always done mine this way with no problem .

    OK I understand that,but I have a mirror mounted monitor and have run cables under headlong and down left hand side under the trim thus coming out near the windscreen. I can feed wires further down between side of van and dash. So now I need to be able to get to rear of dash and don't want to have cables dangling underneath if you see what I mean

    My last van (x250) I had a mirror mounted monitor, I took the trim of side pillar and ran the cables down & was able to pick them up under the dash and feed them across,. On that van I dropped the glove box out and connected the power to the cigar lighter socket wires.

    That sounds what I am looking for,. Was access to under dash easy to get to? And how does glove box come out ? Sorry to seem a bit thick but I want to get it done the easiest way and the tidiest...

    Mine was an X250, I've never been in an X244, but I would think it is similar, found I could just reach up under the dash to get hold of the cables, the glove box was just a case of removing a few screws should be obvious.

    For my current van to find the cables under the A class dash I brought one of these.
