    not on the estate as the sensors go in the lower trim and there are no markings for them,but that is not what i want to know

    you don't need to remove the bumper. Sensors go on the black trim. No drill marks so make a common sense choice. Take a look behind before you drill as there is a solid metal bar which you don't want to go near.
    From memory there is a rubber grommet covering a suitable hole, just pop underneath for a look then feed the wires through and feed towards the fuse box on the nearside.

    When I fitted them to my 2007 XP estate the guide markers were stamped in the back of the bumper, and there are a few well placed gromets into the boot.
