I recon you will find it was missed at the factory
I checked one of the photos I took after I got it, it was definitely there when I took delivery.

I've attached two pics, the one overall pic, and then a cropped pic of the sensor adjusted for exposure. The trim was definitely there.

Re: FCW Scared the bejeezus out of me yesterday

Count me in the missing trim group. 6 week old V8 Overland and I just verified it's not there. I've also had 3 activations for no apparent reason. I'll be turning it off and calling the dealer tomorrow.

Thanks to SWO3ES for the heads up!

No more false activations since I replaced the trim BTW...

Re: FCW Scared the bejeezus out of me yesterday

Never mind! Two false alarms on my wife today, one applied the brakes while she was accelerating. She wants it deactivated 100%.

I'll check and make sure the trim isn't missing again, then I will deactivate it.

Re: FCW Scared the bejeezus out of me yesterday

While I've had the BRAKE! alarm come on a couple of times on trips, I never could put anything together to figure out why. Suddenly, the other day while driving to the gym, it happened again. I noticed that I was going up a slight hill and there was an overpass ahead. Today, I took the same route and it happened again in the same place. I've been driving this route at least three times a week for the last year and it never happened before. I checked the trim piece and it is present.

Wondering what would knock the sensor out of alignment all of a sudden. I have jury duty for a couple of weeks, but when I get done with that, I'll make an appointment with the dealer and have them look at it (as well as hopefully get the brake recall thing done).
