Re: which towbar onto fitted parking sensors?

Most sensors are towards outside of bumper so they should not be affected by a tow bar/ball.
Check where yours are and if needs be, make a false towball and test with it in position.
Only needs to be a small box or even a tennis ball on a stick positioned behind car.

On my Sedona there is a switch in the boot that cuts the electrical feed to the beeper. So the sensors still work but no beep when towing
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
