Parking sensor woes
I have a 2015 facelift SR (Tourer) with front and rear sensors
Ever since I got the car at 6 months old there has been an intermittent problem with the front sensors
Sometimes, out of the blue, the audible warning goes off continuously with the iMid showing an obstruction (yellow I think) straight ahead. After perhaps 10 seconds the sensors return to normal.
Although it's been mentioned a few times to the dealer whilst it was under warranty they never found anything wrong and my wife (who drives the car 95% of the time) just turns them off
However it bugs me that there's something wrong so wanted to find out a little more
As it's detecting a front obstruction I'm assuming it's one of the two central sensors - does this sound reasonable ?
Are the 4 sensors interchangeable, ie can I change the outer and inner sensors to see if anything changes ?
Are there any diagnostics in a hidden menu somewhere ?
Presumably HDS would show more data - does anyone have this in the Herts area that might be willing to connect my car up ? (Or for that matter point me to a cable that will definitely work with a facelift diesel as I have the HDS software itself?)
How are the sensors removed ? Is it a bumper off job ? Or can I gently prise them out ?
Any help greatly appreciated !
