I'm looking at a car which has sensors in the rear bumper, but the owner says they sold them like that and it doesn't have the parking assistant installed.

 

Has anyone seen/heard of something like this before?  Do they even make dummy sensors for essentially filling holes in the bumper?

 

Thanks for any help,

Peter

Not heard that one before, sounds to me like its had the bumper replaced, make sure you check inside the boot and under the rear for any damage.

Sounds total hogwash to me... the kind of thing a pushy salesman would say!! Exactly as Kev says above, have a good look around, sounds like its had it replaced.

The bumpers come without sensors as standard & then you have to cut the holes to fit them. The holes are pre-marked on the inside of the bumper but that is it. I know this as I had to replace mine last year when it got hit. It also came pre-sprayed the right colour from Fords as well which was a nice surprise!

So if it has a bumper with sensors and no parking assistant then it has had a second hand bumper installed for some reason. As stated that needs to be checked in detail as to why!!

 You've just answered a question I asked on here a while ago Nick! Wasn't sure if ford supplied bumpers pre painted still!

 

 

 

 EDIT - just checked back on the thread and you posted on there.. cheers for the info mate.
