Just to add something to this, the WD40 solution has been around for a while and it does work, as I have seen again this week.

Following all this rain I have been getting the long beep from my new to me D2 when engaging reverse for about a week now, I've waited for storm Dennis to pass. Sunday afternoon after the worst was over I gave each sensor a liberal spray and wiped it off.

I didn't use the car yesterday but today hey presto! Working sensors once more. Second time this has worked for me.

I will also mention that it gives excellent relief from bee stings too! Seriously, I have personal experience of this! And I'm not kidding either
