    Reversing sensor buzzer

    I have 2010 Octavia SE FL and have fitted some after market reversing sensors. Some models did have these fitted as standard and would like to know where the buzzer is fitted.

    Good question. I have an Elegance model and so has factory fitted reversing sensors and I haven't noticed where the buzzing comes from. It appears to come through the speakers to me but next time I'm in there I'll try and detect it. It may be coming from the sensor module. I had a mondeo which I had fitted retrospective reversing sensors to and that was a free floating beeper module stuck with double sided tape to the rear door jamb.

    yep, I concur through the speakers in my elegance. I think its 'built in' to the electronics. I had retro fitted reversing sensors fitted to a Ford Mondeo once and that buzzer was attached to the ceiling/wall of the loading bay with double sided tape.
