2016 Ford Focus Adaptive Cruise Control

Hey,

Does anyone know, where radar / sensor for adaptive cruise control in 2016 focus is located?

In 2012-2014 it was located here http://s84.photobucket.com/user/ldsu...10-20.png.html

But for 2016, I cannot find any info.

Did you buy it as an option?

My titanium didn't come with it and the manual says "if equipped"

But for 2016, I cannot find any info.
On the NA Fusions with such, it's sensor is a forward camera mounted as part of the rear view mirror assembly. I had to have my 2017's Fusion one replaced, and it's an indivisible rear view mirror assembly.

I just lied. It does indeed use radar mounted in front bumper. The camera is for lane keep assist system.

It has to be in the bumper. Radar needs to be low, and have clear line of sight.

The stuff behind the mirror is the camera for lane keeping and the automatic rain sensor (which is needed for lane keeping too).

Radar in front bumper. We had problems with police because it affects their radars for speed measure. They used to think we use radar jamming devices. Now it's all good....
