In this post we will show you how to retrofit an original Audi A6 4F parktronic system to your car only on the rear bumper with or without visualisation.
Table of contents:
- Parktronic Module
- Parktronic sensors
- Sensor holders/new bumper
- Sensor Cable
- CAN and Buzzer cable
It is important to get the correct module for your needs. We’d recommend to get a module for 4 sensors and graphics support. The camera retrofit is not an easy task and adding sensors to the front bumper is not part of this manual.
- 4F0 910 283 – 4 sensors, no graphics support
- 4F0 910 283 A – 8 sensors, no graphics support
- 4F0 910 283 B, D – 4 sensors, with graphics support
- 4F0 910 283 C – 8 sensors, with graphics support
- 4F0 910 283 F, L – 4 sensors, with graphics support, with camera support
- 4F0 910 283 E, G, H, P – 8 sensors, with graphics support, with camera support
You will need sensors with part number 7H0 919 275 C. Sensors from the older A6 C5 parktronic system are fully compatible and can be used.
Sensor holders/new rear bumper
You need to get two holders with number 4E0 906 629 A and two with number 4E0 906 630 A. The middle ones are different than the ones on the edge. If you’re going to replace your rear bumper, you don’t need these.
You need to get a cable with part number 4Z7 971 095 or 4F9 971 085 for Avant.
CAN and buzzer cable
The best way to go for this is to purchase the cable from Kufatec.
This end goes to the module:
The CAN High and CAN Low connectors:
Pins that need to be connected to a steady plus and plus on ignition:
You need to get a buzzer with part number 4B0 919 279. Don’t buy a second-hand one since it can be faulty and the sound it produces to be different than the one it’s supposed to.
The installation consists of few steps. First, you need either to get a new rear bumper or drill 23mm holes in your existing one. If you’re going to drill your current bumper, first remove it. On the back of the bumper you will see marks where the holes should be made. Once you make the holes, glue with instant glue the holders. You can’t add them in a wrong way since they’re made to fit the bumper precisely. Finally, clip in the sensors and connect the sensors cable.
In the rear department of your trunk you have everything for the installation. Follow the Kufatec instructions but apply them with care. The same elements that needs to be connected under your glove department can be connected in the trunk.
Finally, add and connect the buzzer in the back left part of the car as shown on the photo:
Finally, you need to code your car properly. First, you need to go to the Adaptation of Can Gateway-a and add Audi Parking System as a module. Next, restart the MMI system. If you have a parking module with visualisation, you should go to the Coding section for the new Parking Aid module and recode as follows:
- 0?xxxxx: Optical Illustration
- 0 = without Optical Illustration in Display
- 2 = with Optical Illustration in Display
That’s all, enjoy your newly retrofitted APS!
