    Hi,
    My parking sensors have been playing up recently, sometimes they work, sometimes just a long bleep and no warnings,
    I read on a old post of listening for a clicking sound on the sensors in the bumper, done this and noticed one was not clicking.
    Now it can't be as simple as just replacing this sensor and all will be well?
    or is it?

    Anyone had the same issue's?

    Yes it can be that simple, only 1 way to find out, but try moving that sensor to another position & vice versa & see if the clicking is same on different loom position & the other sensor clicks ok on the faulty position, tbh best way to determine these issues is with VCDS to scan, diagnose & clear faults.
