I have just turned on the ignition and put the car into reverse and had a listen to each senor on the rear bumper. All four sensors are making a faint ticking noise, so I guess they are working.
Anybody know what to do to get them working again ?

Are these OEM rear parking sensors? I've never seen a W8 come with rear parking sensors, but maybe else where they were an option. Or maybe a dealer add-on.

Perhaps this is an OZ-only thing? I've never seen a W8 in the US with them.

I like those, sort of, but the rear view camera is better. Those beepers kind of get on my nerves.

SeaHunt, how do these sensors work? Is there an audible alarm of some kind if you get too close to something? May we trouble you for a photo of these things?

Very curious...

yes..beeps as you get close and the closer you go the quicker the beeps are until it a continuous beep...puting it in reverse initiates the sensors
