Yeah you would need to take the front bumper off to check them.  Never had to take a front bumper off, the Haynes Book of Paradies will tell you how to remove bumper.

No mate, from start to finish was 1hr 5 mins, most of that was cleaning the exhausts as I was disgusted with them when I got the bumper off.

I beleive so.  The front sensors are a slightly different diameter.  The rear sensors have a 90 deg fitment on them, the front ones are straight I think.

Hi

Do you know if there is a difference between the actual sensor differing front from rear?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the forum.
 
Check the settings on your iDrive, I think you can tell it not to show the picture but till activate the PDC.  Do the sensors now detect an object placed in front of them? 
 
When you unlock the car you should hear the sensors click as they do a test on unlocking the car, if you hear the clicks at each sensor then you know that sensor works.
 
Failing the above you might need to get a diagnostic done on it.
 
Andrew

Hi - awesome feature made a job i was dreading doing really easy.
But now got another issue !
I fitted the sensor - the annoying 'boing' has disappeared along with the warning everytime i start up - the sensors are now making 'noise' when something is in proximity but i have not got my display on ?
Any ideas could i have done something wrong?
 
thx

I managed to fit the center guide without removing the bumpers. I could just manage to insert my hand in the gap and do the screws, rest were easy. thanks for your help.

Don't know.
 
But I'm guessing that the diffuser is fixed to the bumper from the inside, so you will probably need to take the bumper off to access the fixings, just like the reflectors on the SE bumper are fixed from the inside.  It won't take you long to remove the bumper to find out as it won't be hugely different to my bumper fixings.

Nice post, Andrew. I think these are always great for the DIY'er. As long as we don't need dealer resets we're fine.
Who needs petrol anyway...
