Retrofitting Lane assist camera without changing windshield?

You have the same harness I used. You are on the correct path.

Basically, what you're going to do is pull the two wires that you're pointing to (the Orange/Grey and Orange/Brown wires that are plugged into the 17-pin black connector) and plug those into the "female" ports of the small black connector you're holding in your hand. That black connector is effectively a splitter - takes one wire coming in and splits it two ways: The short ends on the other end of your two-port black connector simply go back into the ports on the 17-pin black connector; the long ends (that big roll of OR/BR and OR/GR CAN twisted wire) go to the ACC camera.

Now, having said all that, I ran into an issue where my metal terminal ends did not fit into the connector - maybe you'll have better luck than I did. After trying numerous times, I ended up cutting the wires and using heat-shrink butt connectors to change the terminal ends from one to the other..

Let me measure the dimensions and get back to you since it is custom made without any measurements.
Regarding screws; yes they are to adjust the angle of the camera. You might get away without them but if the angle is off by 2-3 degrees (combined of yaw pitch and roll, i think) you will have either calibration errors or dynamic calibration errors. So it is better to keep them. I had to adjust angles after installing both for initial calibration and for dynamic calibration. I fine tuned it at a level where the pitch and yaw angles are practically zero. There is not much you can do with roll angle with this setup. In my case; yaw: 0.040 pitch:0.050 and roll:0.560. These are dynamic calibration values and they are very low (except roll angle). Initial calibration values are slightly higher but at acceptable levels.

You are assuming that all cars are same and angles will be same but the tolerance is so low that you might need these screws. I'd recommend to have these, but if you want a simpler setup, feel free to give it a try and let us know. Based on reaper's experience I straight went with this setup.
Ok i think these are the correct dimentions.
Are those screws m4 or m5 ?

Perfect Nuje, I already made the connections, THANK YOU SO MUCH. Note: it was necessary to make the amendments with a contrail term, due to the metallic pins being very bulky. For now, I only launched the cable and connections, from now on I will install the devices.
I have in the following material:
- Camera 5T0.
- Camera 3T0 (for testing).
- Cover 5G0.868.437A.
- Camera support 5NA.868.033.
- Rearview 3G0.857.511 AE.
- Flat cable 20mm.
- Flat cable splice.
