    Rear park sensors

    hey, i was wondering if anybody has fit rear parking sensors to a car that normally doesn't come with them.
    i'v got a 51plate 5door club 1.6 and was just wondering how much faffing would be involved.
    i obviously haven't got any of the switches on my dash for RPS and to be honest i don't actually know where it normally fits in.

    the reason being that im doing a bit of an overhaul on the electronics in the astra sometime in summer(for footwell/door lights, sound system,HID's, electric mirrors....) and this seems like the next logical addition i could do at that time. no point in having it all sorted only to do the RPS mod later.

    well, cheers for your help anyway.

    I've fitted rear park sensors to a MK4 astra hatchback (alone with coupe and convertiable)

    Nice easy job really just take you time making sure they are spaced out correctly. You will find loads of foam behind the bumper though but this can be cut away with the bumper off.

    There is no need to run anything forwards though onto the dash unless of course you buy some with a front mounted display. Even the optional factory ones don;t have anything at the front

    what wiring needs to be done once the bumper is sorted out? i was planning on buying a bumper with them fitted and was hoping for a plug and play job.

    Buying a bumper with them on would mean you have to get all the vauxhall control box then all it should need is a power from the reverse lights and a earth
