PostSubject: broken parking sensor   Mon Mar 19, 2018 6:40 pm

THe offside rear parking sensor is cracked and when I switch the sensor on that one is always lit up on the dashoard and always beeping.  I get the impression that the sensor can be changed and perhaps not necessary for it to be an identical part.  Anyone got any knwledge about how to change a single sensor and where to obtain a replacement?

THe round mirrors at the front and back are really helpful when parking but the rear window is tinted and I can't really see the mirror clearly.  I wondered whether putting a spotlight on the back might solve that problem.  I'm still quite nervous about parking a long(ish) van.

I guess an alternative is to get rear camera fitted but I really like the idea of working with what is already there and keeping my lovely vintage van fairly original.

I'd imagine there's only a few types of sensors around, is it a Toyota one?
I'd give it a good check too, maybe it's fixable.

Great looking van, very impressive .
