Rear parking sensor replacement (ex British gas)

Post by Wafflepug4 » Mon Jul 12, 2021 8:26 pm

My parking sensor have slowly stopped working, but all the ones I find online to buy news ones look different.

Does anyone happen to know which ones/make I have? They have two pins.

The van is an ex British gas 11plate

Thanks mate, yes I'd seen that post,
I can't work out if he replaced they control box and sensors or just sensors
I'm hoping that I can find the same sensors and plug new ones in without having to get to the control box, as it's behind a load of wooden panneling and will be a right faff 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

Hi, I've just recently fit the ops ones and removed these standard vw fit ones to make way for them.
I believe they are made by a company called meta Park alarms. If you Google this you will find the company in question. I think they are based in Italy.

I'll have a rumage around tonight to see if I still have them floating about for you.

Thanks, just googled them and they're the closest I've seen so far as to matching.
Some of them look to have a keyway, but the two pin round push fit look identical.

Thanks that'd be great if you still have them

@DW2207
Just bit the bullet and ripped off the panneling to get to it (tbh it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, as I forgot I built the bed to be removable)

You're completely right, it is a meta alarm 8)

If you find them two sensors, please let me know :) and how much you want for them
Not to worry if you can't find them, I'll just buy a replacement kit or something and just rewire it.

Good stuff mate. I was tied up yesterday with the suspension work on my van but I'll check tonight for you.
I don't want nothing for them I'll post them to you. I don't think I threw them out.

@DW2207
Just got PM rights now,
However just tried to PM you mate, it says 'Some users couldn’t be added as they do not have permission to read private messages.'

if you can just double check 'usergroups' (User Control Panel) and 30+ is selected please, then I should hopefully be able to send you a message

Send me an email and will go from there
