I took my car back for the second time after I had the ACC bracket clips replaced after a little knock off road (nothing too major). I had to take it back the second time after they installed the new clips and I still got the FCW Off warning (obviously didn't test it). Their response the second time was the sensor has been damaged and you will need a new one for $6000.

Thinking this is BS I had a bit of a debate with the tech at the dealer about what treatment this item should withstand and he basically just wanted to state his experience/credentials to me and too bad, my problem.

Today I pull off the front air dam to check everything is in order and see the L bracket has the sensor facing downward a little/fair amount. I bend it back to vertical and take it for a 20min drive. No more FCW Off warning! Before that it would always appear within 1-10mins of driving.

Guess I'm looking for another dealer that isn't so lazy and/or incompetent.
Do you happen to have the ACC bracket clip part number? The wife ran over a road cone and mangled them, but the sensor survived... thank gawd!
