Dolphin Silver Fitted to Toyota Auris
Sensor cables were fitted by removing towing point covers on front bumper. Cables fed to driver side so as to allow connection to an added switch for front sensors to be turned on or off as needed. This was mentioned in your notes on p6 for kit DPS400F
but not on p7 for kit DPS800 which has 8 sensors and the one I fitted. Photos show the positioning of sensors on front bumper to give the best results. REAR SENSORS
Careful selection of sensor positions enabled the sensors to be fitted without the removal of the bumper. Take care when drilling to avoid the steel chasis piece behind the bumper. Cables only require the drilling of a gromet hole to enter the boot for connections to the reversing lamp. Control box was fitted inside rear light compartment out of sight. Beware- on the Auris the reversing light connection is on the passenger side only.

I checked before ordering about the bumper and was confident I didn't need to remove it. There is a brace bar behind it and you need to be careful when drilling for sensors A & D as the drill will hit it when through (more so as not to snap the drill). The top of the rear bumper is just over 500mm but the sensors fitted easily at this height though they need to be eased home (the cutter supplied was perfect). It's a bit fiddly but the wires can be cabled tied to the brace bar.
I drilled a 10mm hole in the spare wheel housing (some trays have to be removed for this but the spare wheel can stay in , put in a grommet (bound the wires here with insulation tape) and cabled tied the sensor wires to the loom leading to the nearside rear lamp. There is a locker on the nearside which has an access panel made to measure for the ECU. Removing the floor tray (2*self tappers) allows access under the side trim panel.
It is easier to remove the rear lamp (3*10mm nuts) to join the wires. They are not that thick a gauge wire and I opted to solder but scotch locks should do the job. Removing the lamp also makes it easier to feed the wires up behind the trim panel.
Siting the bleeper was my only problem. It will fit in the locker but I carry several crates and have the touneau cover over them; this does muffle the sound so I opted to run the lead up the trim and put the sensor on a rear window ledge where it's out of the way (for me) but probably not the best place; really depends on the installers preference.
Proof of the pudding was backing up and I'm relieved to say it worked first time (and every time since). the photo shows how close before the continuous tone (In reality this equates to a closer distance than the cone I was using).All in all worth the money.
Installation of Dolphin Automotive Parking Sensors on the new Toyota Aygo with multi coloured bumpers. It was suggested to the customer we could offer two red sensors
for the outer (It would have cost the same price), but he was happy with the way the white ones looked. The installation was carried out by Daniel Boyes at Pen-Y-Bryn-Autos

Dolphin DPS470 Parking Sensors Fitted to Toyota Prius
"I am very satisfied with the parking sensor system recently purchased from
you, here are pictures and a brief description of fitting sensors to a 2010 Toyota Prius which you may wish to use on your website."

The sensors can be fitted on the rear bumper cover without removing it from the car. The metal bumper runs about midway inside the cover so that the sensors can be fitted either above or below this without obstruction. Fitting them around 57 cm above the ground sets them above and nicely clear of the bumper and within the recommended 40 – 70 cm.
As the contour of the bumper cover would tilt the sensors slightly upward the spacers were used, which brought them level. In order to feed the sensor wires into the boot it is necessary to move two plastic panels from underneath the car. These are held in place by a number of plastic pins, three plastic screws, and one 10mm bolt. The plastic pins are removed by popping the centre of the pin outward and the whole pin will then come out easily. The pins can be reused when the job is done. A rubber grommet in the rear left side of the wheel well makes passing the wires forward easy and there is room for the “control box” behind the small plastic storage compartment directly under the light cluster making connection to the reversing light convenient.
The wires attached to the reversing light were too tight to allow a scotchlock to be used so the connection was soldered. A good earth connection is available at the nearby chrome cargo hook. The wireless version was used so the display can be fitted in a number of convenient places.
