Its a 2014 A3 cabriolet. I am want to run the camera from the boot lid reversing light.

O.k., since we are in different countries I am not showing the A3 in this model year.However, I did find some info on this.

It looks like you should have two to four back up lamp options here.

The power feed wires at the lamps are:





These four wires ( one at each reverse light bulb ) are the power feed wires.If this is not what you are looking for let me know.

Just checked wiring on passenger side its Brown, white red, black blue and blue white.
driver side its Brown green, brown red, yellow green and brown.

Test to see if the black/blue has power on it when you shift to reverse only.If it does then I would use this wire.If it does not let me know.
