    Also use some bullet or the like connectors for the rear footwells where the seat connections are, incase you have to remove the seat, cause if the wire is solid all way through to the fusebox or so then you'd have to cut it later, best to do it now.
    Ah, ahead of you on that one Nigel. I bought these connectors off the bay to make it look a little more professional:

    Was just thinking of removing the pins in the convenience module once I've soldered in the parking aid loom so I can shrink wrap the freshly soldered area.

    Also in case I need to remove a pin from the fusebox so I can solder in the power cables....

    I was looking at a kit but I'm not sure if I will need a kit as I dont plan on doing too much removal of pins.

    Just wondered if a couple of small screwdrivers would be sufficient to remove the pins?

    On those connectors a small driver should be fine as its just a locator clip to push down iirc, but others on car wont be same.

    Ok I'm gonna ask....is there any reason why the PDC control unit has 3 plug sockets?

    Obviously one is for the rear sensors and one is for the loom connected to the car, so what would the other one be for?

    IIRC you just need to go into the can gateway & tick the box for parking assist.

    Just checked, I went into 19-can gateway controller, then selected installation list and looked at the options ticking the box for parking assist. What version of VCDS are you using?

    It should be dependent on the gateway version, Byte 2 Bit 2, Parking Aid, then login to 76 to see if its on the CAN ok:

    I've finally managed to tap into the fusebox for the power to the PDC (they definately dont make it easy for you).

    As I disconnected the battery I thought it would be a good idea to do an auto scan and I came up with these faults:

    Ignore all the Door faults and Cent Elec faults.

    Was concered about the others though as I've never done a scan after disconnecting the battery so just wanted to know what is normal to see. I'm guessing the Steering Assist is normal as the lights went out after a short drive?

    The parking sensors are not fitted yet (fitting tomorrow hopefully) so don't know if that is the reason for those faults. I have since ticked the park assist so I think that takes care of the CAN Gateway fault?

    Any help gladly received....

    Thanks Nigel,

    I disc the battery as I didnt fancy soldering whilst connected to the fuse box

    All sorted now though.

    Went for a drive, cleared the faults and did another scan. All good now

    I'm guessing the car didn't have parking sensors before you changed the bumper?

    If so, then you either need to buy the loom from Kufatech.de or make up your own loom like NHN did.

    Here is a link to the loom I bought: http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_i...b6414d25b466cf

    Do you have the control unit for the parking sensors?

    was wondering if you guys could help me out a little, didnt want to really start a new tread as its related,
    i got a s3 rear bumper few weeks back(not got it on as yet) it came with the parking sensors 7H0 919 275 D

    but the guy cutted off the end of the wiring loom where it goes to the module,

    so you think i would need the whole wiring loom? if so is item 3 in photo 1?
    and so the other parts i need are item 6 (photo1)
    and the module do i need the module from photo 1 or photo 2?
    cause etka is coming up with 2 modules, but i think the module in photo1 is for parking steer assist? am i right
    and item 6 (photo2)

    1st of all just repair the existing loom & get some repair wires & connector from audi & 2nd the 1st pic is of the ****ty aftermarket one that are 10 on ebay, thats not the proper one that integrates into the car network, you need to look at the 2nd pic for the oem pdc system, also remember you are looking at a 2004 car but the sensors are from an 06 onwards car S3, so you need to get the module for the year of the sensors mate as they have changed.

    Also Navisace, please read the thread then ask questions as fair bit of info already in here.

    Hi Nigel,

    I'm looking at doing this with my A4. Going back to almost the start of the thread you gave a good description of how to fix the parking sensors in the bumper. CouldI ask a question with regards to fitting these. After drilling the hole with a 21mm bit, does the sensor fill the hole completely or does the bumper need painting. Having looked a bumper with the oem ones fitted it seems that a black ring might be left showing. Is this the case.

    Anyone mind posting a picture of theirs close up for me to look at?

    Cheers

    Neil

    Sensors are smaller on newer cars so more than likely what a 16-17mm now, but when I used my holecutter, the bumper wasnt chipped, infact was a perfect cut & I measured the sensor beforehand & it was actually 21-22 so I used smaller & then made it slightly bigger for a tight sensor fitment so I could epoxy on inside while it held fast in position.

    So case of painting your sensors & then should look ok, but I'm anal, so its at painters for this & number of other things mate, just makes it look oem.

    If you go to illustration 972-50 it is numbered 3 on that picture which is a 12 pin plug - part number 8EO 972 112. (This is using the same age and car you have chosen in your screen dumps).

    You should check tho that its right part

    In elsa you need to view the current flow diagrams (yellow triangle) enter your vehicle details (You will need engine and gearbox codes which can be found on a label in the font of your handbook) and then search for parkind aid. You will get the diagram and it will look something like this:-

    oh wow great help there, making more and more sense, this ESLA is a great program,
    so do i need just 2 parts?
    (1) buzzer
    (2) module
    what about any other looms? ie from buzzer to module or any other parts?or is that all i need
    cheers

    You will need the repair wires & make up the looms, but again I say make sure the kit you buy is for the corrent year of the sensors you have, as they changed as did the wiring!!!!

    Looking at 04 is pointless if your sensors only came out in 07
