You will need to remove the bumper. Im not sure if there are any walk through guides on here. Ronnie would probably be best to help on that subject. But they are not that hard to remove or loosen enough to change it...

Sounds like you have an intermittent sensor failure that I would only be able to pinpoint with diagnostic equipment. Maybe worth a trip to someone with this software? Im used to taking the bumpers off so they are not so bad when you have done a few..
