2005 Landrover Freelander Fitted With Parking Sensors

This 2005 Landrover Freelander went in to Watton Towing for replacement rear parking sensors and they were kind enough to send us these images. 

The factory fitted parking sensors had developed a fault, they were able to remove them and replace with a set of Dolphin Automotive Parking Sensors.  Matt black parking sensors mounted in the original mounts saved their customer ££££s on using genuine parts.
