quick question, whats the easiest way to just replace one of the rear pdc sensors? i have the msport bumper. so im wondering if easiest to just remove the diffuser and reach up? or do i need to remove the whole bumper?

Great post!!!
You've just helped me resolve this issue on my 2010 E87.
After taking out a pint or more of water from the well the PDC was in, does anyone have any recommendations to check where the water came from, attempt to reseal any issue?
Thanks again

Check rear light seal, rear bumper vent and the round drain hole in the top corners of the tailgate opening
