Self Fitting Rear Parking Sensors
Posted 18 February 2011 - 12:40 PM
I have seen various kits available on the internet, and they don't look too complicated, and the saving in cost if I fit them myself is pretty good.
Also, can anyone recommend any particular ones please?

Very easy hardest part was locating the wire to reverse lights I put a post up last year
Great stuff, thanks for responding. I'll locate your previous post.

FYI i chose the matt black, I also fitted a switch to them so I have the option to turn them off if I want to!

To think Ford want £200 for these when you can by them for between £10 and £20.

I have located the brown/green wire (well, it is more green with a brown stripe) in the bottom left hand corner of the boot. This is connected to the fuse box.
I am a bit confused however, as in an earlier post, you say that it is best to make the connection at the top where the rubber hose connects to the tailgate.
Which is best?
Sussed it now, it's not the wire by the fusebox. That is a bigger gauge wire than the one in the tailgate, so not the same one.
I actually managed to get a connection behind the side shelf panel at the top of the boot so no need to feed the cable down the rear pillar. Biggest problem was getting a decent earth connection, but managed that eventually.

I also want to know the safest/tidiest way to connect this system to the reverse light cable please!
