What is displayed on the screen when you switch to front camera?
Eg. Black screen, interference, pixelation.
If you can send a picture of the screen with the front camera on that would be great.

Given the fact that only the front camera does not work the first thing to check would be the camera itself. Please visually check the camera for damage/signs of impact. The camera is mounted to the front bumper grill and therefore open to the weather. The most likely causes of the fault are impact to the camera or corrosion to the electrical connector.

If you cannot see any signs of impact damage I would then check the wiring connection on the back of the camera.

To do this it looks like you will need to remove the front bumper.

I have attached the instruction to accessing the camera to this message.

First two pictures are removing the camera and the rest are how to remove bumper cover in order, refitting is reverse of removal.

If the wiring connection is clean and free of corrosion I would replace the camera and retest. If the connection has corrosion you can try cleaning with contact cleaner otherwise you will need to replace the wiring pigtail and potentially the camera if both have corrosion.

Hope that helps, any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Regards, Joe
