Where To Fit Reverse Sensors


Recommended Posts

A friend bought some cheapo reverse sensors off E-bay (Click here) and they seem to work ok,,so i thought i'll buy a set for the focus.

I've had a quick search but i'm not sure where to place them on the bumper.Depending where i place them to what colour set i order.

I'me sure i've seen them on the upper grey part but also the middle blue strip

I'm sure position 1,2 or 3

thanks nyck

Looking at the sensors Im not sure if they will fit on the top grey part, think the backs are too big. probably best to get the nearest colour match and pop them on the painted part of the bumper

i`ve just fitted mine, estate though, in the gap between no1 and no2. mines metallic blue but put in matt black ones. you need them to be on the flattest part. other wise they will pick up the floor all the time

As to position, well basically like the last poster says. Ford when fitting them at the factory, fit them on the black bumper strip Position No 1.

I fit the electro magnetic type behind the bumper, and when I was laid under the rear of the car I could see on the rear of the black bit of the bumper. And there were un drilled out recesses for sensors, with cable securing clips running the length of that black strip.

Now I personally would be wary that the sensors you have, may not fit if you drilled your black strip. Then you would be stuck with the holes in it, but you could try it if your a gambling man. Now if you were mad enough to try it, I would suggest you take the strip off and drill pilot holes from the back, then actually cut the holes from the front of the bumper strip. Install sensors and wiring whilst of the bumper proper.

Or do as I did with my electro magnetic type, fit them just below the black bumper strip, because obviously in that area is considered by Ford to be the optimum place for them.
