Repairing Blind Spot Sensor Mounting Locations: Honda/Acura

When performing straightening repairs, having measurements is a sure-fire way to ensure the vehicle is repaired back to spec. However, many times measurements are not given for outer body panels. This isn’t the end of the world until you bring advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) into the works. When mounting ADAS sensors on repaired body panels it can be crucial to have the mounting location straightened perfectly. Some OEMs have procedures on getting the measurements needed to make sure the sensor is looking in the right direction.

Honda/Acura have vehicle-specific procedures available to find the location of the mounting points for the rear blind spot monitoring sensors. This procedure is not a calibration, it is a prerequisite to calibration if needed. The sensor fasteners are installed to a specified depth, then a measurement is taken to determine their location. This procedure is helpful for both straightening and for making sure a replacement quarter panel is positioned correctly.
