    Access to sensors in rear bumper?

    One of my rear backup sensors has fallen into the recess of the rear bumper. Seems to be a simple fix to just push it back in its place...but how do you get access to reposition?

    To remove the rear fascia:

    1) Raise the rear decklid.
    2) Raise the rear of the car.
    3) Remove the tail lamps.
    4) Remove the (5) push-pull fasteners securing the top of the rear fascia to the rear end panel.
    5) Remove the (4) fasteners attaching the bottom of the fascia to the bumper/absorber.
    6) Loosen the rear wheel house panels.
    7) Remove the (6) nuts that attach the rear fascia to the quarter panels.
    8) Disconnect the electrical connector from the Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist harness.
    9) With an assistant, remove the rear fascia from the vehicle. You may be able to re-attach the sensor without having to completely remove the fascia.

    Now there is an engineering/design concept any DIY'er will appreciate. But then, I suspect most XLR owners are not DIY'ers, are they?
