    Hello, can someone please tell me where this is located? I have looked on the net and can't seem to find out. I assume because it was a rare OEM option?

    Cheers

    Check the passenger side boot space, behind the carpet near the strut

    Cables didn't seem loose. I can sometimes hear them very faintly, anyone got any ideas? Does the beep come through the speakers?

    What's wrong?

    The blue wire from the main loom (not the sensors plug) goes all the way to the driver's footwell and into the T4 pin of the gong.

    What problem? You haven't said what it is yet.

    You can check the gong by grounding the T4 pin.

    You can check the PDC unit by putting a multimeter on the blue cable and watch it switch ground when it 'beeps'.

    Haha! What a pleb I am! Basically they stopped beeping. At first it got quieter and quieter and then it just stopped?
