Took the car today for its first wash. Now the rear view camera is showing my entire reg plate in all its fisheye glory.

Anyone know if this is a quick fix or adjustment? I've actually left my manual in my gym bag at work so hopefully someone else can enlighten me.

Shug, mine does this too, but seems to be intermittent. My suspicion is that water drops may gather on the lens and alter the view temporarily; water acts like another lens on the camera. I've not thought that it compromises the rear view effectiveness however. :D

Give it a wipe but the manual warns against high speed jet washes. I'd assumed they push the lens in.

Wiped it and 'jiggled' but still the same. I know it will drive me crazy....It's just the fact that my reg ends in 'jzm' and seeing that exact grouping of letters every time I reverse is going to sit in my subconscious all day.......and I have to reverse a lot.

Think they are held in a rubber mount that can get pushed in hence the text about pressure washing.
