    Default Front Parking Sensor Position

    I am about to fit an aftermarket parking sensor kit to my 06 Estate. I have found the rear sensor positions elsewhere on this site. I would like to fit the front sensors in the factory positions.

    Does anybody know the factory dimensions or if the facelift bumpers are marked on the inside with the positions.

    I am not to worried about having the bumper of as i have done the Signum surround upgrade and it comes off within 10 Mins.

    No Probs, The only thing is that i replaced my sri xp front bumper with a vxr one and they only come with the Parking sensor and AFL washer position marked on them as they don't do a vxr bumper with them cut out... also the proper factory brackets have the angle set, the 2 outer ones are different to the ones either side of the number plate, If your sensors could fit into them they would look factory fitted..

    Have you got a link to the kit you are fitting, do they come with a switch so they are not on all the time, or are the activated after activating the rears

    Cheers

    Don't drill the hole's from the back mate.
    Drill a small pilot hole from the back and then use a holesaw from the front. You dont want to damage the bumper they arn't cheap.
    Just a tip i'm not telling you how to suck egg's
