There is no way to adjust if you have objects in front of the sensors, like a box from Aluminess. You can move the sensors around (like to reposition within an aftermarket bumper), but you can't selectively block off 3-D positions in space.Had my bumper drilled for the sensors and they don't work with their boxes. Not sure if there is an adjustment, was going to ask MB when I take it in for service.
My Sprinter has aftermarket bumpers installed by Airstream with parking sensors that work. The bumpers are similar plastic material like the OEM bumper covers.Does anyone have any experience with this? Does the fact that my van has factory installed parking sensors mean that I can't do a custom bumper? Has anyone tried re-installing the sensors into an aftermarket bumper? Thanks for any input.
You can install the sensors in whatever bumper you want. What you can't do is hang things in front of the sensors, and calibrate out those things. If you have an Aluminiess box that hangs out over the rear bumper, you're going to get false readings from the sensors. No amount of calibration will fix that.I could swear i've seen mention of a dealer calibration procedure after bumper/sensor repair, so there may be a way to make the Sprinter happy with the swapped bumper...
In theory you could, but it would be massively expensive. I've never heard of someone retrofitting something that complicated, but if you have deep pockets and really want that feature, I'm sure someone would try it.Sorry, this is kind of off topic, but does anyone know if you can add parking sensors to a van after it's been built if it already has active safety?
