    Default Rear parking sensor question

    A question for you guys that have fitted rear parking sensors in the bumper.
    How did you route the cables into the boot?
    Is there a grommet to put the cables through?

    I had aready used the spare grommet for my towbar so I had to drill a fresh hole using a holesaw and fitted a grommet. Also, just to let you know, I did not have to remove the bumper to fit the sensors - used measurements from a 'how 2' on this site.
