Hi wondering if anyone can help. I installed my parking sensors back in May and have no problems with them what so ever.

but.... Lifted up the false floor in my car last night and noticed that the carpet there is soaking wet I took out the rubber bung and replaced it with a plastic washer to route the parking sensors through but didn't really make much of an effort to seal the hole (as it's not in any easy line to get water into it) I also had to tape up the whole where the spare wheel used to go (because I don't use it)

I'm going to have to dismantle my boot again to check out what is leaking, my question is how did everyone else seal the hole and if you didn't is your boot wet like mine?

Thanks

These appear to be the sensors (same as what I bought - they are not vehicle specific). They are Grey but you will need to check the colour. (On eBay.Co.UK))

*NEW* CISBO Car Parking Reversing 4 Sensor Buzzer Kit on eBay, also Reversing Sensors, Security Electrical, Car Accessories, Cars, Parts Vehicles (end time 14-Feb-09 12:17:36 GMT)

Hope this helps.

AiSt,
Just found my old box - Colour is 'Grey' (perfect match) and the code on the box SB301-4

Just noticed your location and they only ship to UK

Got my cisbo sensors fitted yesterday . Overall a great success , they appear to be working just fine . Hard bit for me was removing the internal quarter panel cover but managed it after much head scratching . The colour match for alabaster silver is perfect . Bought them of ebay and asked the seller for the silvers ones .

Heres a couple of picts to judge the colour match

Hi,
I'm going to attempt the installation this weekend. I've read through all the posts and think I'm pretty well prepped for the job...the only thing I don't fully understand is this "rubber grommit" thing.

Could somebody explain what this is used for and what type I will need for the job. There is also a mention that silicone bathroom sealant can be used....could somebody give a little more detail regarding this (i.e where will it be applied and what purpose is it serving?).

Thanks,
Chun

(Also, just thought I'd mention I installed RickHondaR's ambient light kit yesterday...and it looks great!!)

The wires have to get into the boot from the bumper . On the rear of the car behind the bumper is a entry point which is plugged with a plastic grumet . When you drill a hole through this you leave a point of entry for water . Hence the need to replace the plastic grumet with a rubber one , or drill the plastic one and stick a bit of silcone around it to prevent water ingress .
hope this helps

Cheers, I thought it was something like that but just wanted to make sure.
Hopefully, if all goes to plan, I will upload some photos of the completed job this weekend.

They work great , must say bargain of the year . Mind you getting the interior panel off to get to the wire was a pain .

Behind the cloth fabric on the wall of the spare wheel compartment in the boot . You can hide it anywhere in the boot under the fabric and it will sound just fine when reversing .

I finally managed to fit the parking sensors at the weekend; it took me all of 11hours but I got there in the end!

I bought what Id thought were CISBO sensors from ebay but they turned out to be branded Gadetman they looked very similar to the CISBO kit (including packaging and instruction manual) although the actual control unit was much smaller which was pretty convenient when it came to installing it.

I did have some concerns about the quality given that I hadnt heard of Gadgetman before, but I took the risk and havent regretted it the sensors work fine, I am well impressed.

Ive attached some pictures of the finished results below . Note, the sensors were purchased in black and were lightly sprayed with two coats of Alabaster Silver (NH700M) aerosol from Auto-paint; also, using the wedges provided in the kit, the outside sensors were angled slightly inwards following problems raised by some members concerning sensors picking-up false/mis-leading signals this adjustment seems to have done the trick as all my sensors seem to operate in the correct range.

I originally had mine on the rear wheel arch but found it was too quiet there so have moved it under the carpet next to the drivers door and seat runner.

It's not too much extra work to do when you have everything apart and I would highly recommend it!

I've got my hands on some non OEM parking sensors and had them painted by a body shop for the correct colour match, and will soon be having a fun day with my Dad trying to put them in.

Can anyone explain how the panel at the drivers' side (UK car) of the boot comes off, where you gain access to the brown wire for the 12v supply to the reverse light. I apologise if this has already been covered. I have read through this thread but couldn't find any clear instructions. What's the best angle to approach this from? I had a brief look in the car, pushing and pulling stuff but didn't want to be too forceful without being sure of where I was supposed to be pulling!

The way I have done it was to remove the plastic back panel from the boot (the one that surrounds the boot latch) Then from the side of the drivers side panel just work your way along the edge of the plastic trim pulling up from where the trim touches the boot seal. (pull the boot seal off that area first so that you can get you fingers in)

It helps if you pull in the area where the fasteners are in place because the plastic and the fasteners can be a little fragile but you should be able to find them on the instructions for the how-to.

You do have to give it quite a yank to get it out, don't be shy!

So yesterday my dad and I set about tearing up my poor little car, but it all seems to have been worth it. It took about 6 or 7 hours, but we got there in the end. We ended up managing to velcro the speaker under the backseats. It's visible when they're folded up, but that happens so rarely that I'm not too bothered. The main benefit being that it's quite close behind me, so it's nice and easy to hear.

I do quite often find it beeps even when there's nothing at all behind me. Still need to work out why this is. I wonder if it's picking up the road surface. What's more important though is the beep's frequency increases as I get close to stuff, eventually turning solid when I'm about one foot away. Could take me a while to get more confident with it though!

Finally fitted my Cisbo parking sensors yesterday, I got them for xmas as a present so it's only taken four months to fit them! Really pleased with the end result, removing the rear bumper was the hardest part, after this the rest was just a case of taking your time. Total time was around five hours.

Thanks to everyones advice throughout this thread, it proved very useful during the install. The success of the Cisbo parking sensors is a prime example of how forum members help each other out.

Front Sensors

Has anyone fitted them to the front and rear of a civic as I have been told that front sensors are just as useful as the back ones.

The kit I bought has front sensors too but I still haven't got around to fitting them yet. Been far too busy modding my TT!
