Reversing sensors

I have a set of reversing sensors to fit to the rear of the Stilo, 52 Reg 1.6 Active.

Anyone know how the black section is released from the colour coded bumper???


TIA

Re: Reversing sensors

put your hand up behind the bumper and push it out, or use a flat bladed screw driver wrapped in a rag or something and prise it out. i've put sensors on mine so know it can be done.

if you need help with getting wires into the boot let me know, there are holes already in the car to do this

Re: Reversing sensors

put your hands down behind the lights from within the car, you should find a rubber bung. or put your hand up behind the bumper and feel for a rubber thing hanging down. pull this out and put all your wires through this then push back into place. the reversing and earth wires are black and brown, should you need them

Re: Reversing sensors

All done now.
Quite easy.
Works well. It tells the distance and has the sounder, when it says 0.3m the sounder is constant. I also measured the gap at 330 mm - so pretty accurate aswell (repeated it 3 times for consistancy - same value each time)

The wife will find it useful...
