Parking sensors question (retrofitting)
 
Has anyone taken an oem parking sensor kit from the rear of our wk's and retrofitted it into the front bumper? I would like to try it but have not idea it it is possible.

in theory, it should work, the sensor doesnt know if its going forward or backwards. You may have to figure something out wiring wise to trigger it because typically the unit it turned on by the reverse light.

I think the canbus system turns it on when the vehicle is in reverse

From what i've gathered it would in theory work for the front. There are probably better solutions out there though.
