PD1 Rear Volkswagen parking sensor provides your car with full rear bumper protection when parking and reversing, alerting you to approaching objects via an audible speaker.

When reverse gear is engaged the PD1 Rear Volkswagen parking sensor provides an instant, automatic, self-diagnostic function that maps out the surrounding area of your rear bumper constantly monitoring this as you reverse with 100% accuracy, providing you with 3 different audible tones (Zones) alerting you of your proximity in relation to surrounding objects!
The full length of your bumper (including the sides) is protected with an ever increasing beeping sound.

As you reverse, Zone 1 (furthest away from your vehicle) detects the approaching object first.

Zone 1: 80 to 50 cm in length - The 1st tone signals with a slow "be-be-be" sound

Zone 2: 50 to 25 cm in length - The 2nd tone is a faster "be-be-be" sound

Zone 3: 25cm and less - the 3rd tone is a constant "beeeeeep" sound

Here is what you will get if you order the Volkswagen Parking Dynamics PD1 Rear today!

A. The Speaker is small and at just 20mm in diameter mounts anywhere inside of the vehicle and can be run to any location. The audible tones that are emitted to alert you of the proximity of surrounding objects can be clearly heard even when mounted at the back of the vehicle close to or behind interior panels.

B. The Electronic Control Unit (ECU) is the 'brain' of the PD1, and mounts securely using the supplied adhesive strip either inside of the boot or behind the vehicle bumper. The front ECU mounts under the bonnet or inside of the car, typically behind the glove box. Dimensions of this compact rear sensor unit are just (L57mm x H13mm x D33mm) and the front sensor dimensions are (L75mm x H23mm x D40mm)

C. The Antenna is a very strong and flexible adhesive metallic tape that mounts behind the bumper. Its 1cm height and 2.7m length gives you flexibility to run over bumper curves and round bumper mouldings and ensures 100% bumper coverage of even the largest vehicle, offering a full, all round protection zone. The antenna can be cut to any length in seconds.

Universal Installation Instructions are included covering the easy 3-wire installation enabling any basic DIYer to install the PD1 Volkswagen parking sensor without any problems making the installation simple, safe and secure.

Installation & Compatibility

Installing the PD1 Volkswagen Parking Sensor on cars & vehicles with a plastic bumper!

The Universal Volkswagen Parking Dynamics PD1 is compatible with any Car, Vehicle, Van, 4x4, MPV, SUV and Motor home that has a plastic bumper and as 99.9% of cars and vehicles have plastic bumpers, you have no need to be concerned, even if your bumper appears part metal the PD1 will work. If you are in any doubt please contact us.

The PD1 antenna is easy to fit and requires no bumper adjustments or holes ensuring a damage free installation. The antenna is cost effective to replace should you wish to move the sensor to a new car in the future or simply require a replacement.

Mounting the Electronic Control Unit (ECU):

The Rear ECU can be installed in various locations such as inside of the boot behind the trim or inside your rear bumper with the included adhesive mount. The Front ECU can be installed inside of the engine bay or behind the glove box, dashboard or trim with the included adhesive mount.

Mounting the Speaker:

Mount the Volkswagen parking sensor speaker using the included adhesive mount. The volume is loud enough to provide a good warning even if mounted behind your vehicles interior trim. This connects to the ECU by push fit connection. Can be extended up to 15M and will mount in any location.

Mounting the Antenna:

Mount the adhesive metallic parking sensor antenna onto the inner side of the front and/or rear bumper (depending upon which sensor option you choose) making sure the bumper surface is clean before attaching.

Ensure the terminal connector is on the side where you have located the ECU. When the antenna has been attached, covering the whole of the bumper from left to right (leaving approx 15cm from the edges); the excess length is cut off. Place a piece of the included adhesive material or tape at either end of the antenna to ensure a secure installation onto the bumper. Its recommended (but not essential) to cover antenna length with a black anti-rust protection paint that is applied to the underneath of a car chassis or similar to protect from the elements.

It is important that the antenna is installed at the highest part from the ground that corresponds to the furthest distance from the vehicle body as a precaution to prevent any interference from nearby metal parts. The recommended position of the Volkswagen parking sensor antenna is at least 40cm from ground level, with 50cm being optimum.

Once the bumper is removed, if your vehicle has a metal crash protection bar and the antenna will be within 3 cm's of this metal bar (once the bumper is re-fitted) you can install a 2nd Antenna (included with all PD1 sensors) to prevent any reduction in detection range or insulate the metal crash bar. This is only required on a small number of vehicles but the option is available if required. Read these 2 technical documents to learn more. Boosting Detection Range and Insulating Metal Crash Bar

DIY Installation & Volkswagen Bumper Removal

99.9% of Volkswagen car & vehicle bumpers are made of plastic making the PD1 fully compatible. Installing the Parking Dynamics PD1 Volkswagen car parking and reverse sensor is simple, safe and secure. Depending on your Volkswagen car or vehicle, the bumper may have to be removed. On some cars just loosening the bumper by releasing the locator screws will enable access for installation. If you choose a professional installation most auto electricians, car Volkswageno and security installers, mechanics and body shop technicians will remove the bumper literally in minutes.

Removal of the bumper is not as difficult as it at first may seem and is typically held on with 2-4 main bolts and screws and some locators. In a few cases rivets are used that need to be popped out and simply replaced from your Volkswagen dealer parts department (at a minimal cost) when re-fitting.

If required your dealer's parts department can provide an exploded view (print off) of your front and rear bumper assembly and this will show you exactly how the bumper is fixed to your car or vehicle and where any screws, locators or rivets can be found. Alternatively a Haynes Manual will detail this information.

Post sale you will receive an email of our recommended professional installers.

Volkswagen PD1 is 100% Compatible

Electromagnetic (PD1) or Ultrasonic Technology?

Totally unique in design, the PD1 parking and reverse sensors are a superior alternative to the older ultrasonic type sensor technology that requires you to drill 4 or 6 holes in your bumper, mounting ugly black sensors that then need painting to colour code and match the shade of your bumper... The Parking Dynamics PD1 makes this a thing of the past!

The PD1 antenna has a minimum price to replace and gives you optimum flexibility as it fits bumpers of all shapes and sizes and can run over or around uneven bumper surfaces.

New Volkswagen CAN Bus Systems:

Many new Volkswagen cars and vehicles now come with the CAN Bus multiplex wiring system fitted. The Volkswagen PD1 is fully CAN Bus compatible and requires no adjustment or extra accessories when installing. Beware of ultrasonic systems that require extra wiring and relay components in order to fully integrate with CAN Bus systems. Connect the wrong aftermarket parking sensor and it could be costly. The PD1 eliminates this problem!

Volkswagen Vehicles Fitted with a Tow Bar:

Volkswagen Parking Dynamics PD1 is the recommended Parking and Reverse Sensor for vehicles with a Tow bar fitted as performance is not affected. It's the only Volkswagen Parking Sensor available that is compatible with vehicles that have a tow bar fitted.

Volkswagen Vehicles with Spare Wheel on Rear Door:

The Volkswagen Parking Dynamics PD1 will continue to operate effectively when fitted to vehicles with a Spare Wheel fixed on the rear door such as 4x4, MPV or SUV's. It's the only Parking and Reverse Sensor available that is compatible with vehicles that have a spare wheel fixed to rear door.

Volkswagen Vehicles with a Metal Bumper:

The Volkswagen Parking Dynamics PD1 Front, Rear and Vision Parking and Reverse Sensors are not compatible with metal bumpers straight out of the box. However with a few insulating adjustments to your metal bumper, the PD1 will be fully compatible. See the Metal Bumper Installation Technical Document to learn more.

Nick Price: Monday 09 May, 2011

I'm very proud of myself for fitting it. Good instructions, and once I'd found a way through the chassis and wired it all up, it works! Most of all I had excellent service from the technical department, very patient, understanding and helpful. Thank you.

Angus Davidson: Monday 31 January, 2011

rear sensor delivered quickly.
Installed by local garage. They had to spend time on running wires to rear view mirror. They also had to add adhesive to stick sensor to inside bumper. Having done this for first time they say they could improve if they had to do another.
Sensor works as advertised and I am happy. AD

Anthony Case: Tuesday 30 November, 2010

Both front and rear systems are very good. They work well and apart from, the occasional false reading when backing up a long way, they are realy excelant.
They are easy to fit but a roll of gaffer tape is very usefull when sticking on the arial strip to the bumpers, especialy in very cold weather.
The instalation kit is very good except that the front activation switch has solder tags, so unless this is changed you will need to solder on conections to the switch.
I am very pleased with the system and as a bonus it can be swopped to your next vehicle, which is very useful for company and lease cars. This is bacause there is no bumper drilling involved.

Andrew Whitehead: Wednesday 30 June, 2010

Excellent & easy service from ordering to delivery. Good product with easy to follow instructons.

Mr P.Knowles: Sunday 18 April, 2010

Having mostly fitted the normal 4 sensor systems, this was a breeze to fit, no panic of paint chipping
when drilling bumper etc.
Could have extra length on lead to aerial, but apart from this system works brilliantly.


Dear Parking Dynamics,

I have not yet installed the Parking Sensor and therefore I cannot write a review for your product. However, a friend of mine, whom I trust, has installed your parking sensors on his car and his is very satisfied with your product. As soon as I install the parking sensors I will definately send you a review, which I am sure that it will say that I am more then satisfied with your product.

Thank you.

best regards,

Solon Dracoulis

Mrs T Kimberley: Monday 28 September, 2009

This product was recommended to us by Colin as we didn't want to deface the bumper of our passatt with ordinary bumper sensors - we did wonder whether they would be as effective as the ones that are installed by drilling holes in the bumper and we are delighted with the result! Not only are they super effective and very reassuring there are no visable signs on the exterior that you have anything fitted!!! BONUS!!!
We would most definately recommend the PD1 Parking Sensors - they're brill!!

Mr S D Fordyce: Friday 19 June, 2009

Excellent piece of kit. Works great on my Mk5 Golf GTI. Stealth parking sensors were fitted in around 3 hours. They work a treat!!
Get yourself one.

eschber geryublys: Thursday 11 June, 2009

It is a very useful and convenient electronic device which makes parking easy without any fear of collision. Really an appreciable device. I would like to recommend it to my friends and relatives, that they should get benefit of a really great product.

Chris Mortimer: Tuesday 12 May, 2009

After finding Parking Dynamics website and reading through their very useful information and pdfs, I decided to purchase the PD1 Vision for my 09 Jetta. After working out how to take the bumper off - with the aid of a post on one of the VW forums that included step by step photos, the installation of the PD1 was relatively easy and straight forward. The length of the cable from the main electronic box in the boot to the LED display was to short to put it on the internal mirror so I stuck it (upside down as this had the largest area to stick to) to the dash near the driver side door mirror. The device works excellently, better than I expected to be honest, I'm extremely pleased with this product. Why do people install ultrasonics, they look obvious and have a limited sensor range. Perhaps a window sticker should be supplied with the PD1 so people know about it otherwise it's invisible to everyone tucked behind the bumper. Great product, well done Parking Dynamics

Customer Testimonials

I can't believe the ease by which the parking sensor was fitted and we just love the discrete 'hidden' sensor design. What a difference the PD1 makes to both mine and my wife's parking and reversing.

The audible alert keeps our attention to a maximum level and really helps with tight parking spaces.
