Introduction

In this guide I am going to show you how to replace a factory installed backup camera in a 2013 Chevy Malibu. This guide is different than most because this camera is already installed, the cables are all routed already and that makes the guide that much simpler. Remember to work safely when dealing with any exposing wires, work with the car off (keys out of ignition). Since no technology is break proof, even factory installed technology can have problems so here is how to replace a factory installed backup camera.
