I just got my Explorer back from the body shop after being rear ended a couple weeks ago. Rear hatch had to be replaced among other parts. I noticed when backing into my parking spot when I arrived home that the backup camera view is backwards (ie mirror image) and I can’t for the life of me recall if it was like that normally or not. I have a feeling it shouldn’t be backwards; can anyone confirm that?

Thanks
Chris

It should look exactly like it would if you looked in the rearview mirror. What's on the left of the car is on the left of the screen...

Take it back to the dealer Either they didn't program it to your vehicle or the camera may be defective. There are similar posts in this thread; Rearview Camera Problems
