It's been raining heavy yesterday 8th Feb 2024 and now today my front parking sensor keeps going off when I slow down even when there is nothing to interfear with it.

Give the front of car a clean. Should sort the problem for you 🙂

I have the same problem. Seemingly design of front sensor lets water get in and pool in holder. It has been mentioned that if you pop the sensors out and drill a small hole to let water out solves problem. Not got round to doing mine yet.

Thanks for advice and suggestions cleaning I can do not sure if I'm confident to start drilling holes in them so if it continues after a good clean I'll take it to nissan garage.
Thanks

clean them well, and then apply some car wax after, just to the sensors and the surrounding areas?

I've had 3 QQs and never needed to drill any holes.

Went out today and had no problem with the sensors so think it was probably due to the heavy constant rain Thursday and Friday will also be trying the car wax but not drilling holes in them.
Thanks all for your help.
