    Default Fitting parking sensors

    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to fit some parking sensors to my 03-plate signum. I take it the reverse sensors were an optional extra when they were new, and it's pretty easy to pick up the genuine vx sensors from ebay. I want some flush-fit factory-look ones, is this a better option than generic aftermarket ones? and how straightforward are they to fit? is the wiring already there?

    Pretty easy to do mate. Bumper should have pre marked + on the inside of the bumper(if not use dimensions as in the how2).

    Few pics to give you an idea of job in hand.

    Take a live feed to power the kit from the reverse light live wire. I earthed mine to rear lamp fixing(body). Have my control box in the storage compartment base for easy access. Works brill. Great mod.

    Hope it helps ya some what.

    would say you could e-mail them and ask. Pretty sure somebody will have answer for you though...

    can you use these of your parking sensor switch if you have one and give them the factory look ?

    I was going to order a set of these (in silver) but was worried about fitting them in the bumper because of the clearance behind the plastic (there is a metal bar that runs behind the rear bumper and I dont think it'll give enough room for the back of the sensors, or will it?
    Think i might order another set and remove the bumper to have a look.

    Is there a How2 for removing the rear bumper on a Signum, or does anyone have advice?
