    A3 Rear Parking Sensors - No Drill Points on Inside of Bumper

    HELP !

    I have just taken off my A3's rear bumper and there are no crosses or points where the rear parking sensors are meant to fit.

    I purchased a aftermarket kit and I was under the impression the drill points are marked on the inside of the bumper but the are not.

    My car is a currently in bits and the bumper is on the table so a rapid response would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards

    You don't say which model you have, but my original 08 3 door bumper definitely has the markings as I've just looked!

    Then just drill some holes based on measurements taken from a car with them.

    I seem to recall those roundabout measurements from my fitments, so use a marker pen that can be wiped of if incorrect & then look at from distance to see if they look ok.
