    Vehicle : insignia

    Trim : irmscher

    Engine : 2.0 cdti

    Year : 2009

    Default Parking sensors

    Anyone fitted the gadgetman parking sensors to the insignia ? I've fitted sensors so just need advise on the 2 wires from unit, ones red and others black.

    Plus in this kit you get 4 washers type things I assume they fit on back of sensor to keep them flush but I've snapped 3 of them trying to fit them

    The parking sensor kits are fairly similar, red is usually positive black is earth, the washers are to act like shims to adjust angles slightly where they are pointing downwards not straight rear or to one side. Don't worry about them breaking the Insignia rear is fine looking with them mounted flush.

    So red to reverse and black to ground, so these kits don't need to be secured from rear ? Do they stay flush ?

    Yes mate red to the bulb side, black to common earth.

    As for securing the sensors, mine had some silicone blocks that were pushed into place after inserting them in the bumper (my bumper was off the car) If yours is still on the car try some clear bostick rubberised adhesive I saw a garage that fir these use that on a new install they said id did the job A1

    Should fit flush, I believe the washers are used if you need to angle them up / down. If you fit without them they will sit flush, just means you can't angle them down slightly should you need to. I've got spare rings/washers if you need them but they're in red.

    Didn't use em on my installation in 2009 in our 55 Reg Facelift Club Hatchback ....which was the 6 sensor kit.

    Sensors held in position with the sponge 'grip strips' on the body of the sensor - I colour coded 'em....

    4 x Rear



    & 2 x Front



    @ the electrical circuitry to suit what I wanted....




    Cheers
