Refinishing Park Assist Sensors

Park assist sensors are part of the park assist system, just one of many advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) found on vehicles today. Damaged sensors are typically replaced and may require painting to match the vehicle. Vehicle makers often provide information on the painting of new sensors. Some vehicle makers do not recommend refinishing sensors with minor finish damage because excessive paint thickness may adversely affect the operation of the park assist system. However, other vehicle makers allow refinishing and provide guidelines.

The I-CAR RTS team has been researching service manuals, bulletins, and other sources of OEM information to provide the most up-to-date information on refinishing park assist sensors. When the information was compiled for a specific OEM, we published an article detailing the information we found.

Follow OEM procedures and warnings to help ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.
