    Hey guys finally got hold of a new parking sensor module and was wondering if anyone has a write up or pictures to show me how to remove the trim in the boot to access the old one to replace it?

    Ive searched the net but the one lot I found had the pics removed.

    Thanks

    Re: Access to the parking sensor module

    I just had my sensor go on a b7 avant.
    There are guides on how to remove the bumper but its a 2 hour job. you have to remove the inside trim panels and inner trim from where the amp sits etc. then there are four 8mm nuts holding the bumper from inside. you also need to remove the screws from the underside and wheelarch.
    here's a guide with some piccies:

    If you can, get someone with small and skinny hands to reach up behind and remove from the back. I got mine out but it was a tight bstard.

    If you are only wanting to get the boot trim off there is no need to remove the bumper. The boot trim is easy to remove.

    Hey Cabby just wanted to say thanks for those PDF files took the panels off swapped over the parking sensor module and guess what Ive bought the wrong one got a 8D0 part instead of an 8E0 part gather 8E0 parts are for the B6/B7 and the 8D0 for a B5?!

    You wouldnt of thought there would be a need to change parts like this would you?

    It worked for my rear parking sensors but didnt engage the front ones!!! grrrr
