How to remove Rear Bumper for parking sensor installation

Recommended Posts

I have been reading through all of the articles on this web site and its by far the best place for advice, tips and diy projects.

I have a year 2000 Porsche 911 996 and I want to install rear parking sensors.

I have found this terrific product that requires no drill holes.

The Uk link is here http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Parking-Sensor-Direct (£50 + £2p&p)

The US link is http://www.parkingdynamics.com

The installation looks very easy to do, but requires the removal of the rear bumper.

Can anyone give some instructions on how to remove the rear bumper in order to install the sensor strip to the rear of the bumper?

Many thanks in advance.

It’s my first post but I’ve been reading (and learning) this forum for a while… I have a 2000 996 C2.

I took the bumpers out to get them resprayed and decided this was the right time to install parking sensors. I’m installing this same model. The easy part was removing the bumpers. My problem now is how to route the wires from the rear bumper to the car interior so I can ear the beeps. Can you help me?

Let’s see if my rusty and dusty English allows me to explain how I did it.

1. I’ve removed the rear bumper, cleaned with alcohol and placed the antenna tape with the connector to the right side of the car.

2. Removed the right tail light and the rubber pass-through (I don’t know if this word means what I want to say). In front of the hole where the pass-through was there is another pass-through that lids to the car interior. With a steel wire I’ve made a small hole in this 2nd pass-through. You can access this through the engine bay.

3. Removed the rear right side panel lining and with the help of the steel wire passed the wires I needed (red, black and the antenna twin wire).

4. Connect the power wires (red and black) to the tail light wires blue and brown. Connect the antenna wire to the antenna. I had to extend the original wire.

5. Place the ECU and the speaker inside the car behind the rear right side panel lining.

6. Replace everything.

That was it. It works like a charm and very accurately.

Good luck to your installation.
