Rear ended someone in my 14 overland

Silly accident and not much damage. However the active cruise sensor keeps saying that it needs to be wiped off. And it is loose. Wondering about 3 things.
1 anyone know if we have to reset the sensor in these situations?

2 anyone have diagram showing how it attached so the car? Trying to figure out which parts I need to buy.

3. Anyone know a dealer that will give us discounts on parts? I know in the bmw community certain dealers are known to be friendlier to bmw car club members and offer discounts...

The front sensor is pretty durable, but it does need to be tightened. Once you get it tightened the messages will stop. At least that's all it required after a deer encounter
I had in 2014.

I don't recall the exact price of the sensor, but i think it is over a thousand.

There's a little clip that probably needs to be replaced. my wife had a little deer impact that caused no damage but it knocked the sensor loose. A little clip if I remember right needed to be put in. Be carful when ordering as it took three tries to get the right part and not the whole housing. The sensor should be ok.

This might help, pages 452-453 of the 2015 owners manual 4th edition instruct on how to remove the ACC sensor for off roading. I checked the 2014 manual and it doesn't have the pictures.
