    I know this has been brought up before but couldn't find any "how to's" on fixing the issue. It seems that either the front or back parktronic sensors occasionally go faulty (more often than not these days) I think its down to water getting on the connectors so want to check this before I go down the route of replacing sensors (I will have it put on star first though).

    Any help would be great

    Generally the PTS sensor that gets damaged through water ingress is the offside rear.... I had one that went faulty every time it rained heavily, replaced the sensor and all was well.

    You can get the sensors on Ebay really cheap, just make sure it's a genuine one.

    Takes under 5 minutes to change but be careful you don't break the plastic mounting on the bumper fixing.

    Hi V6 Matty and television.
    I was wondering if either of you chaps could send me the papers on both the Parktronic and Load Cover issues.
    Intermittent problems with both and any guidance much appreciated.
    My email is boeingbbj@hotmail.com

    Thanks in advance

    Hi gents,

    I was just wondering if V6Matty managed to get his parktronic issues sorted out. I recently bought a 2004 E320CDI Estate, and the hardest item to get my head around is the 'bl**dy' parktronic. Simply put I press the alarm silence button twice at which I get a beep and depending whether I have a forward or reverse selected, I get just 4 red lights and nothing else. However this is the case permanently so I believe it is not water related issues. I have done a visual check of the all the sensors and nothing seems out of place.

    Would it be possible to get a copy of these instructions that you have so that I may do a more thorough check of the sensors. In some ways I wish the issue would be indicated on the dash. Nothing worse than a problem without an apparent cause.

    Thank you in advance,

    Richard
