I have a Renault accessory fixed bar fitted to a 2004 Espace with factory fit parking sensors (it was fitted prior to delivery.)
I had a dreadful time getting info from Renault on this subject. Eventually found a very helpful RTE at a local dealer who explained that if the car was programmed to tell it, that a towbar was fitted then the system adjusted the detection area to compensate for the towbar.
To date I have had no issues at all, infact the sensors, when the beep is solid (ie very close to an object) still gives approx 100mm from the end of the fixed bar.

Hope this helps
