Parktronic Retrofit C180K

Hi

Can anyone help ?

I have now gathered all the required parts for retrofitting front and rear Parktronic to my wife's C180K.
But I have been unable to find information as to where the control box is mounted and how the main wiring harnesses are routed through the chassis or how and where it is fastened.
I am in Australia so I also need to know if there are differences for Left and Right hand drive vehicles.

Hope someone can help with a few photos or diagrams ?

Thanks for any help

If you don't mind my asking, why does such a small vehicle even need Parktronic?

The question was not for me but a C-class in Europe/Australia is bigger than an S-class in a US city, if you compare it to the room around for cars.

I recently made a deal for a new C-class, I would have had a good offer from a car at the shop but I did not want it because it did not have parktronic.

Small objects can also be difficult to see even from a small car, or perhaps equally from a small car (if one considers the C-class a small car outside USA).

Is that a W203 C-class (it could be a W202 or W204)? There is a retrofit guide for the rear parktronic if you can subscribe to MB workshop info services in Australia. The remove/install front parktronic sensors would help for the front but for the wiring you would have to figure out yourself the best approach.

If you were lucky, Miro might be close to you, perhaps some other retrofit expert if you don't insist doing it yourself (BenzModz).
