OK, so having read the Haynes manual, I should have never removed the sensor due to the risk of damaging the 'optical gel'.

However, on our Scenic, there are no signs of any gel in the holder. This leads me to the conclusion that someone has been there before me, possibly to figure out why they weren't working.

So I now have a bad / non-existant optical contact and a suspect sensor

Question: Does anyone know if it is possible to renew the optical gel contact?

Currently in martin999's garage:
2011 (11) VW Passat 2.0 TDi SE + options in Island Grey, 2011 (11) Honda CB1000R in Pearl Cool White... oh and a 2004 (54) Secnic II 1.5dCi Dynamique in Ottoman Blue !
