Hi All

Hope you're well today!

Just bought a Honda E Advance and decided to buy a Dashcam to be permanently connected to the Driver side interior Fuse Panel, however, I'm unable to remove panel to gain better access to the Driver side interior Fuse Panel.

Please could you kindly provide some assistance?? I would appreciate this a lot.

Many thanks

This isn't answering your question, but I used a 'BlackVue Conecta X OBD Power Cable' which plugs into the OBD port for the very reason you're having because I wanted a simple solution, though I did go to the trouble of removing the A pillar trim to hide the wire.
Have you tried removing the door seal because that could be a good place to start.

That is a good idea, I will have a look into that in the next couple of days. Thanks

I'm getting my car delivered in the next month or so and I'll be doing exactly the same to power a Garmin Mini 2.

How easy was it to pop the A-pillar trim off? Curious to hear how easy it is to get access, as I don't want to be all ham fisted and ruin the interior when I install it.

I didn’t remove the pillar trim just pulled it away slightly to gain access, see here for details with photos:
