I have park assist but I never use it. It’s a pain to engage and does not bring much to the party. It’s a lovely idea but not huge value in practice. Don’t move the earth to retrofit this unless you have a real need. L405 P400e Autobiography (MY2020)... Silicon Silver / Espresso

LR053995 is the part number for the rear wiring loom and I know that as that is the one I had to purchase.

For the front wiring loom there are quite a few to choose from and so I suggest you speak to Sophie at Duckworth's (Very helpful team) to try and narrow down which one to choose. They should also be the best place to buy from as they are site sponsors


Hi, sorry to jump in 4 years later but i have recently bought a Range Rover with parallel park and want to add perpendicular park. Did you fit this yourself or did you take it somewhere as I'm having trouble finding out the best way to do it. I am working off the assumption that the 2 sensors on the sides at the front mean no work is needed that end and its just adding the rear side sensors and enabling the software that I assume is already in the cars computer but just needs unlocking.

Good afternoon

Yes my Sport had the parallel park option as standard and I fitted the perpendicular set up myself.

Extra purchases was a new rear wiring loom, two new sensors and two new rear bumper side trims. Then my OCD kicked in to ensure the trims and the sensors were painted the same colour as the rest of the bumper.

The module reprograming was taken care of the by the IID tool and the GAP team. I think there was a set up cost for this.

Let me know if you want any more specific details and one thing to note is that since I have had this option installed I have used it about 5 times, but really enjoyed the challenge / experience of the whole process "Every Day is a School Day"

Thank you. Yes I'm not sure I will use it all that often but I like the smugness of showing off what my car can do 😂

Where did you get the IID tool from and who are the GAP team.

What's the difference in the bumper sections, would it be possible to simply make a hole and clip the sensor in. I'd assume I'd have to be very precise with the location.

Here is the link to the GAP tool

https://www.gap-diagnostic.com/products/iidtool/

There is a used market for these and they frequently come up for sale on this forum and other Land Rover / Range Rover forums.

The side bumper sections have the hole for the sensor, but also the supports behind the plastic which the sensor will attach to. Actual hole location may not be an issue as long as it is in the general area, but 'clipping' it in will need some support structure behind. "Every Day is a School Day"
