    I've looked the forums and couldn't find detail to this question .
    I have a 2013 ms and the connector in the mic area is there, however, when I take the voltage of the wires that are there, one is 30v and the other is 22v. I thought one of them should have been 12? Am I using my volt meter wrong?

    Are you assuming that the black wire is the ground? In mine it wasn't: I tried various combinations until I found a 12V difference.

    Does anyone know how to remove the rearview mirror grill to fish the cord from dashcam to 12v power? Been trying for an hour with a plastic pry tool like this video suggested.

    Pull down hard on the side that is facing you (the edge that faces the rear of the car). It has metal clips that won't break.
