Ive fitted these too, many thanks for a great guide.
The only problem i seem to be having is every 5 mins or so the lcd screen beeps for no reason at all.
Has anybody had same thing happen to them ??

Another awesome guide Preee!

Im seriously considering doing this (not that i cant park.. :huh: )

With the one's you've shown, do you know where you'd mount the buzzer?

does anyone know if its mounted in the boot, and is loud enough to be heard in the front, say over a little music?

Thanks awesome awe-inspiring people.

They usually mount in the boot unless like me you carry dogs then they tend to mount it in the A or B pillar.
They are pretty loud and I had to mute mine down a bit.

The ford Default buzzer is mounted O/S rear behind the panel , thats as good a place as any it will echo in there unless you have a sub banging away :)

TBH you're probably better off getting ones with a bit of adjustment so you can tune out kerbs and towbars etc.

Just ordered myself a set (buzzer only) off eBay.

I'm fitting them to a mk2 though and I've just checked the bumper - no guide holes marked out!

Anybody have any suggestions for how to measure it out?
