    MK5 Astra reverse sensors fitted

    A guy at work asked me to fit a set of reverse sensors to his MK5 Astra.

    Wasnt too bad to do.

    Had them colour coded last week so they were the right colour (Halfords while you wait mix up in a spray can) then got on and fitted them today.

    Bumper came off quite easy and the positions for the sensors were already marked on the back of bumper.

    Work really well and his wife is over the moon (And his bumper is now safe lol)

    No offence meant Lee but they don't look that good in the postions they are in. I know you say they are factory postions but they look badly spaced and a : ( face

    No need to take the bumper off either

    was it an aftermarket kit or the VX jobby?

    If it was aftermarket, did you just wire it in to the reverse light?

    Edit: wondering if there would be a problem with CANBus because of it, know what I mean?

    Next time I do a set on a MK5 I will be moving the outer ones up so they are inline.

    They are an after market set and yes wired to the reverse light wires.
