    Re: Warranty replacement of 12 V battery

    I purchased a CPO 2017 REx in 2019 and think there might be something going on with the 12v, but dealership says not covered under warranty?

    Re: PDC sensors, front fender

    I'm currently fixing a similar issue, but not with the sensor falling out, but with a broken sensor, as in no signal. Hubauer Shop (Germany) is very good for diagrams. For the front, apparently there's backing plates on the front bumper/fender. Part number: 51117414362. You need last 7 digits of your VIN to search. Ideally you need to remove the underbody panel, not just the wheel arch liner to get a proper look. Pretty sure these sensors engage with the backing plate, but don't just get pushed into posit [...]
