I have bought some rear sensors for my Focus MK2.5 and, with the aid of the guide on this site, will install them next week. Easy-peezy. Ive seen the guide (http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/tutorials/article/154-guide-to-fitting-rear-parking-sensors-focus-mk25/), checked everything on my car, and all looks VERY straight forward.
But, because I was doing some for my car, and needed to pay for the postage for delivery to me, I also went and asked my neighbour if he wanted some too (because they are a good buy, hes a man (so likes gadgets), and has a Focus Estate). :oops:
I stupidly thought that the ease of installing the sensors on his car would be the same as mine. However, having already convinced him and ordered, I then just looked at the back of his car and the Focus ESTATE MK 1 bumper is VERY different to my 5dr MK2.5. :iim: And now Im afraid that it is not going to be so simple and he might refuse the sensors and I am left with an extra unwanted set.
So, my potential friends, could you give me any pointers and how to access the underside of the bumper please? Because as I look at it at the moment there is a foam 'padding' type affair there. (How do I get this out?). Also on my bumper the innerside of the bumper has a manufacturer 'stamp' where factory fitted sensors would go making the positioning easy. Does this MK1 bumper have the same (IF I can get that foam removed)?
I would look for any help you can give me chaps. (Google isnt my friend in this instance, as it seems no one cares about guides for Estate cars).
