I want to fit reversing sensors to wife's Note. Looking up from underneath the plastic bumper seems to have a metal structure right behind it restricting access. Do you have to remove bumper to drill and fit the sensors on a Note? On previous cars you could see up behind plastic bumper and easy job to drill, fit and wire up sensors.Peter

Best plan is to remove the plastic outer skin. Others report that it is marked on the inside for the sensors, and then you can make sure that there is the required internal space.

It needs two people, as you don't want to scratch it, but is only a matter of undoing screws and trim clips.

if your taking the bumper off it a good idea to put a cotton dust sheet or a lump of old carpet down as you dont wanna scratch the bumper, there should be marking on the inside for the sensor holes

iirc there should be a grommit to get the wiring inside the car too

The Sensor if the photo is visible place, will not be a problem.

The bumper can not be removed. If you drill visible in the photo, there is an empty space, which can drag a piece of hard wire. The four wire to from the reversing sensor be put in the car. A rubber plug to be removed, which can be seen from the inside. But it should be removed before the back cover (pulling up) and right-side cover (two screws to be removed and the hook).
Removing the hook: pull out the center first, then the hook comes out. Nothing should be forced, because it is broken, and very expensive to replace.
When finished, the silicone rubber plug to be pressed over the hole next to the new wiring.

Come to think: Before drilling the approximate location of the sensor, must be bonded to a bumper strip, and to draw out the exact location. If the hole is ready, you have to take, so you do not scratch the bumper.

I put the Sensors in the bumper strip equally spaced, the out ones are easy to position and find the wires, the centre ones proved alittle bit more awkward but as Papo suggestsuse green garden thick wire which is pvc coated and wont damage the paint work of your car, however Iremoved the interior plastic lock cover and some of the interior plastic covers, to route the wiring.
All in all it was about a four hour job and looked great on my dads mobility car!!

Only the OEM kit will be little. Be sure to be some understanding, and courage. Those who did not do such a thing, but rather by a qualified professional.

Shindig come down to yorkshire and i could fit and paint the and provide them for you car for as little as £100 installed, I guarantee theyll look as good as a factory fitMike
Well the Dealer who took the car back at the end of the three motobility wanted to know who fitted them as it was a top mark job and they dont have anyone who does it as well.
But i do fit printers stairlifts , mowers electrial and petrol Rc cars and boats etc
