    Reverse Sensors in rear bumper

    I've just won some reverse parking sensors of a well known auction site

    I planning on putting them in the rear bumper but not sure what spacing and where they go. I thought i read somewhere that the bumper has marks already in place for the factory fitted ones is that correct?

    They should go between 45-55 cm from the ground and space them out equally

    All sensors have different parameters as to where they should go so read the instructions you get with them

    If you lucky there may be some makes inside the bumper if it was available as a factory fit option. When I fitted them to my old Zafira, the marks were on the inside, so made my job of placing them easy.

    thats exactly what i'm hoping for but Autosparks is probably right.

    Has anyone got a pics of rear bumpers with reversing sensors fitted on MK4 Coupe, please state if it's factory fitted or self fitted
