    I knew it was going to happen eventually! My front park sensors have been a little twitchy for some time now but, at the weekend, they just started going straight to red.
    from what I can read on here, it looks likely that at least one sensor has failed or become waterlogged.

    How easy is it to get to the sensors in the front bumper? It's been too wet to have a look underneath but are they easily accessible?

    Thanks

    Dave

    Sounds like mine - they have slowly been geting worse so i thought I would see if I can find the culprit (likely to be n\s corner sensor) and maybe dry it out properly and waterproof it.

    No, not removeable strips - all in one moulded bumper. Can they be accessed from underneath or does it need the bumper off?

    It is near impossible to get to on the car, the end ones maybe but not those in the center, bumper off really
