Chris -

If you find one for sale, I would be willing to buy the plastic trim that holds the sensor into the bumper if you have an extra. Mine is missing and I can not just buy the trim ring. The color does not matter as I can repaint it.

Thanks
Marc

Hi Marc,

I will let you know for sure. Seeing the price of the new sensors I may have to learn to live with the sensor not working. Dealer wanted $330 plus paint. That is crazy! I am going to check with a few local salvage yards and hopefully I will come up with something....

Regards,
Chris

Thanks Chris.

I have seen new ones on e-bay for $95.00 each. I was just going to use touch up paint (brushed on) as it is such a small trim ring, I don't think that it would look that bad.

be careful, some on ebay are aftermarket, NOT oem GM sensors

If there is one thing I have learned, spend the extra money and go OEM. Over the years with owning and operating a floatplane operation, you learn the hard way to stick with the original equipment!

i need 1 also so if anybody wants to do a group buy on a set of 4 .... ($200 on ebay...GM not aftermarket) let me know.... it'll be $50 a piece plus shipping. I also do paint and body work so if you guys need paint, I can help you out.

i was told by the dealer that they cannot be painted more than once and expect them to work. is that true? if you can, i am all for the group buy...

07-16-09, 11:01 PM
how many do you need? just 1? by the way, I repainted my sensors and they worked fine! One of my sensor housings is cracked and the whole system is no longer working.

If you are going to use your existing trim ring, I would be intrested in purchasing the extra one for my EXT.

Let me know
Thanks

I was missing one trim ring, and needed complete assembly with sensor. Of course dealer doesnt sell the ring alone, needs to buy complete sensor. So it made sense to try the repro stuff. Don't mind sending you one of those rings if you pay shipping. They are all different tho. Can post a pic. Will have it installed before week is over.

Sk7-

If you were also missing a trim ring then you would not have an extra as the one that I would need would be the same one that you would need. The other trim rings are for mini vans and other vehicles that use this same sensor.

I would pay shipping but I as I said I am not sure that you will have an extra left over.

I got my URPA working. I only need a trim ring from the outside of the bumper. If anyone does a group buy I would be interested in buying a trim ring from one of you.

Thanks

please post your paypal id so i can get you the money. you mentioned being able to paint them? what would be the cost to get on in white?

luxurylife33
07-28-09, 11:44 AM
i was going to send all my paypal info once they arrived. If you want to pay now, that would be great! The 3 stage white paint is $60 for a half pint setup which is the smallest they can mix me. I also have the white so lets say $20 extra to cover some of the paint and a little bit of my time? (basecoat clearcoat Dupont paint)

Paypal address is DDBRAVES98@AOL.COM

if the $20 will cover the cost to paint them to match the pearl white i am in for that?

07-29-09, 12:45 PM

no problem! did it fix your issue?

also pilotwerx, ill send you that other sensor, no body claimed it. let me know if you want it painted again too....

pilot-werx
08-10-09, 05:04 PM
Please hold off on sending it to me. I am kind of stumped because the sensor did not fix my system. I ended up going to the dealer and buying a new one and that worked. So I am not sure if it was a bum sensor or the second coat of paint did something funny.....

luxurylife33
08-10-09, 06:37 PM
Thats wierd because I checked both of you sensors (corals also) before I shipped them... I plugged each of them into my system to check that they worked... and that was after the paint job.... interesting, Im sorry to hear about that

pilot-werx
08-10-09, 10:34 PM
I am going to take another one out and try it. The dealer is a friend of mine and he even said they can be painted once more over the original. Hell if I know. Will let you know what I find.

luxurylife33
08-10-09, 11:42 PM
Let me know, Im willing to work with you.... Coral, did yours work?

luxurylife33
08-10-09, 11:44 PM
And all 4 of my sensors were reprayed because I had to repaint the rear bumper and decided to leave the sensors in so the paint would all match. So i know for a fact they can be repainted at LEAST twice.... sorry man, let me know if your second attempt works.
