    My reverse sensor fails now and then with constant bleeping, after looking at the sensors, two of them have blistering on them and look a little perforated. Does anyone know how I go about getting this fixed?

    I've got to take the bumper off and replace the sensors? Because when I get my head down to them, they are still clicking!

    Gotta wait till they are misbehaving to listen to them to find the faulty unit.

    Yeah, they are all clicking, it's just that the pained surface is bubbling and perforated.I think rain is getting into the 2 that's bubbling causing it to constantly bleep.
    Any ideas on what to do?

    i wouldnt of thought rain would cause it to constantly beep,

    However, sometimes a good spray with WD-40 can cure a problem with PDC's

    or if you think it is the bubling/rain water under the paint causing the problem, take them out rub them down and re-paint them
