    Default Just Fitted Rear Parking Sensors......at last

    Why is it that people like me always put things off until after the horse has bolted?

    Had an argument with a post and the post won, so at long last I have fitted RPS's, oh and thanks to How 2 for the info on removing the rear bumper.

    Question is this, is there a blind spot in the centre of the bumper as the two inboard sensors are 26 inches apart?. The outboard ones are 12.5 inches from the inboard sensors (these a VX's recommended positions)

    BTW I wonder what following drivers think when they see a damaged rear bumper on a car with rear parking sensors? Bumper getting fixed next Friday.

    Gordon.

    Yes I used the marks on the back of the bumper, I was just wondering if I reversed towards a post which was, say, in the middle of the numberplate, would it pick it up.

    I guess I could find a post and try it.
