My PD has the full black plastic housing thing behind the rearview mirror.  Sorry if this is a stupid question, but does this black plastic housing come off allowing a dashcam to be installed discretely behind the mirror? 

I'm not sure if it's a fascia or if it serves a purpose.

My old GD has the same automatic wipers etc, but didn't have the internal plastic housing.

Cheers

The Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) detects the road lane with sensor located at the front windscreen and warns you when your vehicle leaves the lane. The Hyundai i30 LDWS warning light illuminates in:
- Green: When the lane departure warning system has been activated.
- White: When LDWS operating conditions are not satisfied.
- Yellow: When there is a malfunction with the LDWS.
When there's a problem with LDWS, do one of the following:
- Restart the engine, then turn on LDWS.
- Check if the ignition switch is in the ON position.
- Check if the system is affected by the bad weather. This can be due to fog, heavy rain, etc.
- Ensure the camera lens located on the centre-top front windscreen is clear of dirt, snow or any other debris.

Is it? It's all I could find on what may be lurking between the interior rear view mirror and the windscreen. I'm guessing if the PD in question has LDWS, the option to sneak a dashcam into that space isn't there.

On i30 PD, the black housing thing on the windscreen behind the internal rear-view mirror contains the forward facing camera used for safety functions. Do not mess with it.

See pages from handbook attached:

Hi

I'm about to do the same. Where did you end up fitting your cam? I can't seem to find anywhere to put it where it doesn't impair vision.

Could you post a picture?

I know it's a little late, but it might help someone.
I placed mine on the passenger side, sort of behind the rear view mirror. I can't see it at all when driving.

It's not too late, I'm still trying to decide where to put mine.

Thank you.

...and by the way, Romania is one of my favourite places. Especially Transylvania.
