    Hi All,

    Well it looks like one of my rear parking sensors has had a fit gone wrong.

    Got the usual sqwark to say somehting is not right with them as per the manual. The 3 of them are making a faint clicking noise but one is not.

    Car is a A4 Sline 2.0 TDI and these were standard fit on the car, my question is does anyone know how much one of these cost to fix?


  2. They're only around £90 new for a whole set mate - I'd take it to an indie specialist, the stealers will kill you with labour!

    Took my A4 2.0 TDI SLine to the Stealers (Ipswich Audi) today for a service and cam belt replacement. I asked them to look at the parking sensors (front & rear)
    as well as they have failed for the second time now. The first failure was under warranty so I had no idea of the cost. In the 3 years I have had the car they
    always play upin te cold/wet weather and generally mysteriously come back intermittently in the hot/dry weather.

    They phoned me back and quoted £214 for one failed front sensor and £322 for 2 failed rear sensors !!!!! Having also been quoted £433 for a failed EGR valve replacement
    at the same time I decided not to take up their generous offer ;-)

    I will try to source the parking sensors myself and get the work done at an indi as I don't fancy detaching the front & rear bumpers myself.

    I believe the correct part number for B7 model parking sensors is 7H0 919 257C which has a 90 degree connector (I think the B6 models have
    part number 7H0 919 257A or 7H0 919 257D with a 45 degree connector). A "GRU" at the end of the part number means a primed version.

    Can anyone confirm these part numbers and can the A and D versions be fitted to a B7 model ?

    Seems you can pick these up for anywher between £20 and £40 per sensor from eBay.
