'12 F10 with faulty front parking sensors...

All members,

I would like to know if anyone has any problems with the front parking sensors on your vehicle when you are parking backwards.

I have this issue all the time when I parked backward, the two corner sparking sensor light up and the alarm sounds inside the vehicle like there is an obstacle in front of my vehicle but there is nothing in front of the vehicle.

I took it to the dealer and they told me the cause of this problem is my clear protection front bra. this is happening for the last two months and the clear protection bra was installed back in May '12 after I bought my car...

I would like to know any answers and suggestions of what really cause this ... thank you to all members and happy new 2013...

Well if the bra just got dirty wouldn't that affect the sensors' capability to detect objects, or give false positives?
