I've recently had to have a repair/replacement of the rear bumper after a collision but it seems like the rear parking sensors are out of calibration ever since. They beep erratically and indicate a hazard when nothing's there.
Has anyone had any experience of this or can suggest a fix?

I don't think they need calibrating necessarily. Rather they are damaged or blocked somehow. 2 of my front ones on my A7 were beeping erratically and it turned out there was abit of car wax rubbed into the gap. Who did the work, Audi - if so they should be checking anything like that that.

Thanks for the reply. It wasn't done by the Audi recommended repairer because they seemed pretty awful based on customer service and reviews. Went with a large local firm via insurance company and they've done a really good job. I'll have a closer look to see if there's anything is odd trapped in there.

Have a look at face of the sensor, on a previous A4, they were retro fitted and painted over in body colour, and in time the paint lifted off the plastic surface leaving a small gap, this was enough to give phantom alerts.
