GT Parking Sensor replacement

My GT seems to have some pretty decrepid parking sensors at the moment: the outside ones are fine, the inner ones either side of the number plate are arthritic (if they can be). The nearside one does nothing until you're about 30cm from something and then goes into solid beep mode and the other one just seems dead. I've read about them sinking into the bumper but they seem pretty flush at the moment. Anyway I am thinking along two lines here:

1. replace the 2 inner sensors....which seems to be a bumper off job and possibly on the expensive side.

2. rip the lot out, buy a 30 set off ebay and use the existing wiring to the control unit.

If I do (2) I need to know the size of the sensors: they appear to be push-in fitting on the bigger 'warts'. Has anybody had similar experiences or done something like this before? How much are the replacement sensors?

146 1.6TS, 156 2.0TS, 156 1.8TS, 147 1.6TS, 147 2.0TS, 159 1.9JTS, 147 1.6TS, 159 1.9JTDm, Mito 1.4, GT, Giulietta 2.0JTDm, Giulietta 1.4tb, Giulietta 1.6JTDm........
