Hi

Do you know if there is a difference between the actual sensor differing front from rear?

Thanks

Scott

I beleive so.  The front sensors are a slightly different diameter.  The rear sensors have a 90 deg fitment on them, the front ones are straight I think.

No mate, from start to finish was 1hr 5 mins, most of that was cleaning the exhausts as I was disgusted with them when I got the bumper off.

Yeah you would need to take the front bumper off to check them.  Never had to take a front bumper off, the Haynes Book of Paradies will tell you how to remove bumper.
