    Hi everyone,
    My neighbour reversed into my rear bumper causing it to split, but it's also damaged the surround on the parking sensor.
    I have no idea if my sensors are factory fitted, so I don't know how easy it is to get a replacement part.
    Would anyone be able to shed some light on it please? Is the collar a standard size and available over the counter from motor factors? Or will I have to get in touch with Audi?

    Here's a pic of the part in question.

    Thanks,
    Callum.

    Get yourself registered on vagcat and then check the parts diagram section - the park sensors are listed under electrical systems - parking aid.

    Thanks for the link, I can see that site being very useful.
    I had a look at the diagram, it says 'no genuine parts for this model' Does that just mean it's a standard part and can be gotten from anywhere? Thanks,
    Callum.

    The factory fitted parking sensors are in the grey insert - I'm not sure yours are original are they??

    yeah I have seen them fitted into the grey trim, but I don't know if that's just on facelift models, they probably are not standard.
    Cheers again mk1chopper for your help.
