Subaru Forester. Handling of radar sensors

  1. Sensors

The radar sensors, one on each side of the vehicle, are mounted inside the rear bumper.

To ensure correct operation of the BSD/RCTA, observe the following precautions.

  • Always keep the bumper surface near the radar sensors clean.
  • Do not affix any stickers or other items on the bumper surface near the radar sensors.
  • Do not modify the bumper near the radar sensors.
  • Do not paint the bumper near the radar sensors.
  • Do not expose the bumper near the radar sensors to strong impacts. If a sensor becomes misaligned, a system malfunction may occur, including the inability to detect vehicles entering the detection areas. If any strong shock is applied to the bumper, be sure to contact your SUBARU dealer for inspection.
  • Do not disassemble the radar sensors.

NOTE

If the radar sensors require repair or replacement, or the bumper area around the radar sensors requires repair, paintwork or replacement, contact your SUBARU dealer for assistance.
