    VW Polo tdi 2011 ground point for dashcam hardwiring

    Hi, I'm trying to hardwire my dashcam, however I cannot find a suitable groundpoint in my polo, most screws I find are set on plastic and therefore don't make suitable groundpoints. Does anyone have an idea where else near the fusebox I can ground my hardwiring kit? Thank you
