    Anyone got the part number for the E46?

    Edit: Actually I think I might have found it:

    66 20 6 989 067


    Can someone double check it for me?

    I've got one for £32 quid off eBay now...waiting for it to come.

    Can someone instruct me on how to fit it? Is it as simple as just disconnecting the old one and plugging in this one? Also how does one remove the black trim?

    Thanks

    mine has arrived, well it arrived yesterday, fitted today, and working great.

    to get mine out, i just lied on my back under rear of car, put my hand and fingers under bumper, unplugged wiring loom, and the PDC is held in by two clips, one is very easy access, other needs a small thin screwdriver to locate, then just push from outside (push lens sensor) inwards and withdraw.

    to fit new one, just clean dirt from inside guide tunnel, then feed sensor from under bumper and push outwards to bumper, it will stop at clips and go no further.

    then refit wire, making sure you get wire right way round.

    2 mins job in total.

    Hey thanks for the little guide, I see you have the CI therefore a slightly different bumper? All my sensors are on a plastic strip(see sig)

    I've just been having the same problems as you lot, i've also got mine on a black strip, mine's a CI also, but its just not the M bumper. I don't want to give anyone any bad news, but i got mine from GSF (German Swedish French) Car Parts in Birmingham, they were £3.24 each, i got 2 just incase.

    As you say, pretty easy to fit. I think its when there is water inside the actual sensor, not just when they're wet.

    After trawling through a lot of threads,could not find a definitive answer to the sensor problem ie;clicking=working,not clicking=not working,I found that one of my sensors was clicking slightly quieter than the other 3. I obtained a replacement from a breaker and bingo,job done,I reckon that if you get a good sensor and use process of elimination you should come up trumps.
