Easy to fit!

I bought the official Renault parking sensors for my Laguna and all I needed to do was drill 20mm holex4 across the rubbing strip.

I removed the rubbing strips to make this easier. I don't know about the Megane but with my Laguna there are pre-drilled holes in the bumper behind the rubbing strips for the sensors to sit. As I removed the rubbing strips I just marked them with a marker so my drilled holes would line up with the pre-drilled holes.

Regards wiring. Easy too. Just lead the wires along the rubbing strip and through a gromit that the wiring for the existing lights is. Once inside you just connect the 'power' cable to the reverse light bulb cable and the 'earth' to surprisingly an earth point.

It took me all of 45mins from start to finish to install mine.

The units should all be preset too. Mine came pre-programmed to start beeping slowly when an obstruction is within 3.0m and to increase in speed until a solid beep at anything that is 0.5m or less.

The car also comes with it's own parking sensors. A loud bang and sound of plastic cracking means there's something at 0m or less behind you

Parking Sensors

Bought an expensive kit off eBay for my Wife's car and it was easy to fit and was easy to adjust the sensitivity. Fantastic bit of kit.

Bought a cheap one for my car. Might have saved myself trouble and time by chucking my money straight in the bin (cutting out the middleman ). Finished up ripping it all out and dumping it = fitting was easy enough but the sensors would not stay in place and the sensitivity was all over the place and could not be adjusted for consistency. Total junk.

Laguna parking sensor

I must admit that I have been a little disappointed with mine on my Laguna Sport Tourer 2.The audible warning is not loud enough for me and the visual indicator is placed too far away on the roof near of the rear passenger seat, and it's a long car.Cost 250 as an extra in 2003.
