Rear parking sensor removal
« on: May 30, 2018, 10:13:17 AM »
I have two new rear pdc sensors to fit on the near side. I can reach them from underneath but how do they come out? Chuffing things are well wedged..

Eh up I have just done mine, the little beggars are tight in.

I did this:-

Used my plastic pry set
Undid exhaust blanks
From the outside inserted my pry tools gently on the edge of the outer sensor cover
Moved it on the edge down toward the bottom
As the gap increased slid the other pry tool in the other side and did same
I found my outer cover then popped out from the bottom
Once the outer was off you can then easily push the sensor and inner housing out through the exhaust port
Then clean it up and slide the sensor out and Un clip the electric cable
It’s a bugger refitting too, I did the reverse once I figured out how stuff clipped together

No way could I figure out how it could be done any other way.

Hope this helps

Thanks for that. What are the exhaust blanks? Do you mean the bits on the bumper that surround the tailpipes?
