Fiesta mk7.5 OEM Front Parking Sensors


EOM front parking sensors

Fitting EOM front parking sensors if you already have rear sensor pack.

(Thanks to 540itouring) first Look at the body computer passengers side fuse box near fuse box to see if the wires that go to the parking sensors and wired to the plug  C2280D BLUE PLUG FRONT sensors at pins 6 , 11 ,20 , 21 , 22 , 23.



Then remove the stop start switch and check if you have all 8 wires connected to the wiring plug




Check If you have the wiring loom connected in the engine bay, look below the drivers side crash can just to the right of the radiator 





if you have all of these in place you should be ok to install EOM front parking sensors.

sensors*4   1808019

retainer kit  1818621

(cost me £158 including vat from ford)







Connect up new switchIMG_4430.thumb.JPG.8cae83efc2c0f421e82600a2e6e955ed.JPG


Remove headlights and either remove front bumper or front grill to gain access to fit additional wiring loom and sensors.






Mark locations for sensors and drill holes with 26mm holesaw




Paint  sensors and retainers to colour requiredIMG_4335.thumb.JPG.f579e8702043289645c7b6d5b364b37a.JPG


clip or tie wrap new wiring loom into place, I used tie wraps as the loom normally fixes to rear of the front grill but because I had removed this it wasn't possible to clip in place. 


Clip retainers and sensors into place and connect to loom



Connect new wiring loom to existing loom found under the crash can.


now activate front and rear sensors with Forscan 






There you go, full EOM front sensors that activate every time you select reverse gear or activate the switch. Automatically turns off at about 5mph.


Good luck everyone but note this is only applicable if you already have OEM rear sensors and my car was a 16 plate red and black edition.
