You don't say if your vehicle is a PFL or FL mk3 so I'm assuming PFL as you already have rear sensors and camera as the FL can't have rear camera without front sensors. You have options and can source the parts yourself from Car-Systems or other suppliers and if you're confidant perform the retrofit yourself and then get them coded by someone with access to VCDS. Your other option is to contact a retrofitter who will supply/install/activate the front sensors for you. There are site sponsors who are retrofitters who will be able to assist you so drop a PM to @DJAlix who runs VAG Car Coding as I used his Leicester based partner to complete my retrofits who comes highly recommended.
I am half way through fitting rear sensors and a camera does this mean I have to also fit the front sensors at the same time as one job?
Do you have the item code for the FL front grill?
Incorrect. Have installed loads of cameras in vehicle with rear sensors only, even with no sensors. What documented is that you cannot have parking sensor display, ie the radar lines, without front sensors.If it's a FL the answer is yes I'm afraid, it's well documented on the forum if you have a search. The rear camera won't work without the front sensors on the FL. My S3 had factory fit rear sensors but I wanted the rear camera so had camera+front sensors retrofit at the same time.
I'm afraid not & I doubt you'll find it online unless your very lucky as there are lots of grill combos. I'd recommend you contact your local Audi Parts or try this forums Parts Request supplied by Crew Audi. My existing grill was used with the holes punched out using the correct (expensive) tool then sensor brackets modded, pics in my S3 diary of the finished look which I'm very pleased with.
I had, at the time, a brand new 2017 S3 visit for a few bits which had no parking sensors! Some oddly spec’d cars out there.I'm my defence I did want the full parking plus upgrade & can't for the life if me understand why someone ordered my vehicle from new just with rear senses only.
I will hang my head in shame for the rest of today but I swear I did read somewhere that FL rear camera won't work without front sensors....or was that rear sensors.... I'm off to stand & face the corner of the room
The rear camera won't work without the front sensors on the FL.
Hi people new to this forum and I’m looking for some help if anyone has done this before. Looking to fit front sensors for my car I currently have the rear sensors and a rear camera. Any help would be much appreciated
Car: AUDI A3 8V S-line FL. (2017)

No parts from Kufatec were usedUnfortunately VAGPro supplied all parts so I don't have any part numbers but suspect Kufatec were used for the various installation parts. I have enough fiddling on my Vauxhalls & just wanted it done on the S3 so outsourcing was my preferred method at the time.
