    Default Reversing Sensors/Towbars

    I fancy installing the rear reversing sensors that a few of you have bought off ebay, only problem is i'm not sure if they will work ok with a towbar fitted?
    If anyone knows info much appreciated.

    Cheers, jontymo

    I have a tow bar fitted and also fitted parking sensors from ebay. If i was to do it again i would fit the 2 in the middle sensors slightly further away from the tow bar. I occasionly get false beeps and wonder if the sensors are detecting the tow bar. Mine are fitted in the factory places (where marks are on rear of bumper). One other thing i intend to do is to Put a male/female spade or bullet connector in the live feed so that i can disconnect it when i have the caravan on (gets on your t1ts a bit try to reverse a caravan with the beeps goin, or tryin to hitch on, hth
