    There's one button on the dash near the ESP button. It controls both the rear and the front sensors. If you push the button whilst driving slowly it actually switches the front sensors on. If you push it once you've engaged reverse then it turns both sensors off. Logical is'nt it!

    No button there! That's how a dash with no sensors or just rear sensors looks. Need to ask the dealer I guess...sorry.

    Is that the compartment where you are meant to keep your service book? (I won't as the book contains my address!)

    Anything else down there whilst you were looking?
