Protecting ACC sensor

Looking for something to go on the front like bull guard, or brush guard or something similar that will allow the ACC sensor to function but protect it if the front end is bottomed out. Don't mind cutting a hole if needed.

Thank You!!

Re: Protecting ACC sensor

Whilst not answering your question, it's worth mentioning that the sensor is quite easy to remove... you just get a dash warning, and of course the system doesn't operate. I've not had mine disconnected long enough to see if it eventually logs a code, but a cheap dongle and your smartphone can sort that out.

Cheers,
Steve

He means take it off for the day while you go off road. Not permanently.
I'd be extremely careful about putting anything in front of it.

You can't put anything in front of it. When it snows and snow accumulates on it you get a message.

Re: Protecting ACC sensor

I was hopping I could find something that went below it to protect it from bottoming out but was cut out in front of it so it would work

Re: Protecting ACC sensor

Man, if you're worried about bottoming out and taking out that sensor, by that point you would have already destroyed the lower section of your bumper lol.

Re: Protecting ACC sensor

That's why the lower section of the bumper is removable.

It is a good solid product. The original lower guard fits back on over the top for normal use. removes in 2 minutes when going bush.

So with the lower bumper section removed the ACC sensor is the lowest point? I would just remove it for the times where you are doing extreme off-roading. Its probably nothing more than a couple bolts and a single connector. Probably have it off in 15 seconds.
