I get that. I was just thinking aloud about the hole sizes and sensors colour but on reflection, I probably redefined overthinking. It's all sortable.

I bought a set of these for my wifes 25 which are same size and a good colour match (silver). They fit OK into the existing holder in the bumper and will need perhaps a wrap of gorilla tape or similar to make them a snug fit. I haven't done job yet due to ill health as I think Ill need to remove bumper to get at existing sensors.
Ive faffed around for ages trying to get existing ones to work without success, wiring etc all looks brand new as cars only done 29K but at this price far easier and cheaper than going to an auto electrician. Hope this helps.

Again, me too – I stripped the loom out, checked for breaks, cleaned and greased all the connectors (they didn’t need it), checked each sensor for clicking etc etc etc… still didn’t work, gave up.


Not absolutely sure you have to take the bumper off…? Check carefully before you do, as it’s a bit awkward – but I did manage it a couple of times without assistance for other reasons

I'm laughing with you, definitely not at you. I'm fine with bumpers though.

Exactly the ones I was looking at when your notification came through. After to-ing and fro-ing, I've decided to fit the 8-sensor version front and back. They give the useful advantage of a display monitor which I like, and I'll fit it above the rear-view mirror.

So you removed and then reinserted the new Cisbo sensors inside the original holders? The inner diameter of those holders is 25mm; the outer diameter of the Cisbo sensor bodies is 21mm and the front lip is 25mm. So that will give a 2mm all-round clearance inside the OEM holder which I'll need to take up with tape as you mention. The Cisbo sensor lip OD is the same size as the OEM holder ID so that should sit in nice & tight. As far as I can see, the Vermillion Red sensor colour is very close to Copperleaf so I'll take the chance with a near-enough colour match.

Nobody understands the problems we have, eh?

Dougie.

I'm looking at Rover 25 sensors (54 Reg) which I am sure are the same as my 75 (i'll double check again tomorrow). I took out one of the originals and it measures 22mm dia, hence the wrap of tape for the difference.
I haven't actually tackled the job yet but I did try a CISBO unit in the holder and it fits ok.

My reference to removing the bumper refers to the fact its a 25 and when i tried I can't get my hands in to remove clips on three of the 4 sensors, it might be easier on 75.

Thanks for that. Are your holders the same as mine on the Tourer? The sensors are recessed into them.

I damaged one of my sensors by reversing into a fence, don't ask how! The beeper sounded continuously when in reverse. All the sensors clicked so it was difficult to find which one was faulty.

I tried aftermarket ones which looked identical and some I came across on ebay which came from a different car (Landrover I think). Neither worked. Eventually I luckily came across a NOS set in the right colour on ebay, took the rear bumper off yet again and fitted them. They worked but shortly afterwards the beeper itself stopped working, presumably after working so hard with the faulty sensor! I replaced that and all has been well since.

No mine are not recessed they are flush with holder, looks like there are different ones fitted. My 75 is 2003 and 25 is 2004.
