I need to go digging for mine at some point.
It seems there's a fair bit of trim that has to come out.
I'm hoping there's simply something loose or a bad connection with mine, but I suspect it won't be that simple.
I've no intention of removing bodywork...

I've been trying to sort out my parking sensors which I have covered on a recent thread.

I could not find the ECU just a small junction box in the rear corner. Nothing behind bumper itself.

I'm still investigating but my problem seems to have been that all four sensors had failed.

With my ear to the sensors, I can hear all 4 clicking away when I put it into reverse.
So guessing it could well be something to do with the control box.
I'll attempt to locate it when I get some time.
I'm sure I read somewhere it's on the driver's side and low down in the boot, and at the opposite end to the tail lights.
Can anyone confirm this?

You should be able to follow the electric cables from the sensors along the base of the boot rear to it.

As I have already covered in the following thread, the only thing I could find was a small junction box, the size of a Tic Tac container, on the boot floor in the right hand corner. Not sure what the control unit looks like so it could have been this but no-one had an answer to the question when I posed it.

Followed the cables as far as the rear speakers but could find nothing else.
