    Seems like a common problem in this forum!! When i put my car in reverse i get the constant tone. When i get close to something it starts to beep then works as normal as i get close to something?!! How do i check the sensors! Had a quick look today but didn't have the time to investigate forther? any ideas?!!

    Regards Aaron

    Hello mate

    Lovely car!
    Turn ignition on, engine off & put it in reverse, then go round the back & put your hand in front of one sensor at a time.
    You should hear it click (it'll help if you can do this somewhere quiet).
    If one of them doesn't click, it is knackered & needs replacing, apparently they are a bloody rip off from a dealer (would you believe it?), but you can normally pick up a set from ebay.
    Cheers.
