    Default VX Parking sensors what size are they?

    I have seen an estate rear valance with the holes for parking sensor holes for sale.

    What size are the vx Parking sensors?

    I am wondering if I can get a generic kit and fit them in the genuine VX holes on the valance?

    Vx holes are bigger than almost all the aftermarket ones. I had fitted my own sensors then had the bumper replaced after a shunt but they supplied a bumper with holes, thinking that I must have had factory sensors. I had to pack out my sensors to fit the holes.

    They're 24mm, got my new mounts sat here waiting to go into my new rear skirt, but have only got a 21mm hole cutter so am waiting for a 24mm one to arrive.

    So I need to find some 24mm sensors then...

    Most on ebay seem to be 21mm.

    I have seen these Cobra ones http://www.cobravehiclesecurity.co.u...ter-a0158.aspx
    They are 25mm so might work with a little persuasion.
    Though the cheapest I have seen them is £75.

    Seems to be pretty unique to Vauxhall ones that I've found so far. All aftermarket ones seem to be 21mm.

    Cool, might give the matt black ones a go.

    What is the buzzer like? Did you mount it in the boot and is it audible?
