Laguna - Parking Sensors ?

Hi, I've had a Laguna for just about 2 years and I wish I'd found this forum before, I'm not sure if my ownership problems are typical but the list is as follows:

2 rear parking sensor control units
New start/stop button
Re-programmed keyless entry system twice
2 engine re-programmes
1 EGr valve
1 CPU main computer replacement[/LIST]
Is this expected with Laguna's?

As luck would have it most of the problems were under warranty however I'm still out of pocket on the investigative work.

Odd as it may seem I still like my Laguna and at the moment have no plans to sell it

Is it possible to get a replacement rear sensor (factory fit) as my parking sensors are still playing up and the warranty would not extend to replacing the sensors??

I made enquiries with one of the sellers of sensors on ebay as my car does not have "factory" fitted ones.

I cannot remember which one, but he told me whenever a customer buying a new Renault from the dealers wanted one with sensors he had the contract for fitting them. So are they all fitted at the factory?

I would suggest buying a set of sensors off ebay , the complete sets cost £20-£50, I am sure that is cheaper than Renault ones, ask the seller if you could just use part of his system to make yours work.

If you keep having problems with yours I bet it is caused by water getting in them.

I recently fitted a set of these to the Clio. Less than 30 quid including P&P

CISBO Parking Sensors for only 24.99 with 4 sensors, UK Delivery. Half Price limited offer reversing sensors.

I'm not sure how the hole sizes will compare to the existing sensors on the Lag II though. The kit comes with a 21mm cutter, so I assume that's the diameter of the sensors. You'd have to pop out one of the existing ones and measure the hole.

This system has the added bonus that the beeper is installed remotely from the control unit and has a pretty long wire. This means you can actually install the control box in the boot, but put the speaker behind the dash (at a pinch - the wire only just reached on the Clio) or at least somewhere near the driver.

The beep is a bit cheap and tinny compared with the factory sensors, but other than that, they do a grand job.
