Parking Sensors Pitfall
Well, decided to look at my none working rear sensors. Got a bit temperamental about a year ago but have given up the ghost completely now.
No messages on the dashboard or diagnostics so I thought, bumper off and check for broken wires or something obvious.
Have had the front bumper off to repair washers and that was pretty straightforward so expected rear bumper to be similar.
Some hope. Twenty six fasteners of various types, twenty four of which undid fairly easily, one was a complete pain but eventually freed, but one, the most difficult to access, would not budge. Tried drilling the head of the bolt off but gave up, now half way through hacksawing through the bolt with only one inch of sawing movement, until got rained off.
Will eventually get there but even at this stage I can see all the wiring and there is nothing as obvious as I had hoped for so all the effort could be for nothing.
When I eventually get the bumper off, I'll check and clean all the connections, but if that does not work anyone any suggestions what I should look foor next?
