Default How to remove backup sensors?

100 degrees out in my driveway now and I'm trying to get the wiring apart on the backup sensors so I can put some dielectric grease on the connectors hoping to get rid of the EVIC notice telling me they're dirty.
Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Oak

Sure, but its easiest with the bumper off.

From the back slip a small flat blade screw driver between the inner sensor and outer plastic cup. The sensor will pull out the back and the plastic holding cup will go out the front of the bumper.

Curious as to how the EVIC would know that they are dirty? I'm thinking there might be some thing on the sensor face that's causing that error code. Wipe them off real good with a microfiber towel and see if that doesn't fix it.

Mine is in the shop for the same reason. Covered under extended warranty so it cost $100 bucks. Let me know if this fixes the problem because i am sure its going to happen again in a few years with the Michigan winters.

Thanks.
I unplugged the wires from all 4 sensors and sprayed magic goo (lubriplate) into both parts of the connectors. The EVIC still told me they are dirty and need cleaning. Maybe if I get some time tomorrow afternoon, I'll try to remove the complete units from the bumpers and see if I can clean everything more thoroughly. I may just have to resort to backing up the old fashioned way!

I should just ignore the sensors and get a tailgate latch camera installed to work with my RER series radio/nav unit. I had the camera on a Grand Cherokee and there was nothing better for backing up to a trailer hitch, which is a real PITA the old fashioned way!!
