Fitting Parking Sensors To Fiesta Mk7

Recommended Posts

I fitted them Bosch sensors finally. And it was a real real real pain in the ***** to fit those quarter turn things at the back that hold the  spacer in place and that the sensor slides into them. They were frustratingly difficult to fix I am really disappointed with Bosch (expensive product) for this. I drilled the exact size of 26mm (measured even with a verneer caliper and it was a clean cut so there is no excuse about that. I do not know how I did not break all 4 of them. It was a real struggle. Thing That I noted is that they start beeping at a very close range Is there any way that I can increase a bit their sensitivity? I doubt it.

Also the end sensors, the ones that I had to colour left a little gap (1mm or so) at the top. They didn't seat completely flush. Did yours sealed completely flush http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/profile/31593-lollapalooza/ ? lollapalooza or not? I really don't wish to take the bumper off again. Also the angle and position  of these sensors at the end are somewhat off Bosch's table they are at 380mm height and 102 degrees. So I had to use the 0263006102 rings which are the most tilted ones for the ends. Did you use these as well lollapalooza?

As far as I remember, there's a way to calibrate them, just check the installation manual.

My sensors don't have any gap. They are completely seated in.

It was a long ago, and I'm not 100% sure, but I think I used same rings.

Your car needs a wash lol. Joking apart where could I have gone wrong? I drilled in the place marked with a square and a cross in its centre. You remember if you placed the thing at the back with those white serrated arms that you press facing upwards or downwards? Although I dont think they make a difference. Yours are perfectly flush

No I posted the pics of the rings. They are 1mm over (27mm) at the vertical position, across they are ok. That is why they were so hard to fit. I am really disappointed with Bosch. What should have been an hour and a half job was a 3hr frustrating job. And being Bosch and costing 150eur I did not een think that they might be off size so I did not check them. I did last night though on the spare rings that I have left and there is the result.
