    all i did was used a scotch pad(scourer) then a god clean with panel wipe plastic prime base then laquer, how many do you need? i would be willing to get a set and do them for you for price of sensors plus £30 for my time, as ive still got some titan silver, let me know, there is a bmw breakers near me so should be able to get a set, spray them then send them on

    opted for red in the end. if i dont like them they should be easy to repaint.
    this may sound a little stupid, but ive also ordered axel stands for added support whilst im cleaning them. where exactly do u place them (never used erm before, what part of the axel)?

    for anyone looking for the same info there are three bolts in the boot.. undo them, then undo the clips pins under the footwells (2 each side), and another clip pin under the bumper (1 on each side.) then you can pull the bumper off.

    Im stuggling to find these bolts! I can find that theres three on each side but realoem says theyre shock absorber supports! Ive found all the various push pin clip doobies but these bolts are a nightmare. Ive attached some pics. If you could highlight the general area of these bolts or a direction arrow to follow it should save me any more hassle!

    Ive actually got small enough hands to have disconnected the wire from the sensor but no amount of swivelling, pushing or pulling the sensor will free it from the bumper. Im wondering how its kept in place?!

    Cheers
