Question Help Needed: Parking Sensors on ML55 or W163 Sport Bumper

Can anyone with rear parking sensors on their ML55 or W163 with Sport Bumper do some quick measurements for me.... needed kind of asap...

I need measurements (mm or inches) between the center of the parking sensor to various reference points (SEE PIC)

A: Between outer sensor and edge of exhaust panel cover
B: From top of exhaust panel cover to center line of sensor
C: From Inner Sensor to edge of exhaust panel cover

TIA !!!!

PS: I will be doing a writeup with pics for others looking to install aftermarket PDC / Parktronic system / Rear Parking Sensors in their ML's .... so hopefully it will be a good reference for others looking to "modernize" their ML's

(yes...yes... you can always get a backup camera... I just really like the PDC system... used to it)

I have neither package but is there a particular year you need, I do not know if there would be any changes year to year but you never know.


I take it that the photo you included is not your bumper, but one with sensors, there are ways to get measurements off of photos by scaling it. I am not that tech savvy my daughter might know?

Have a stab in the dark. Itís not really that crucial. Remove the bumper cover and position them evenly between the bumper supports. Put the outer ones just inside off the corner so it gets a good side beam angle. Hook it up to your reverse light wiring.
