My parking sensors stop working in the rain, how can I fix this?

I have a 2020 Nissan Qashqai, the front parking sensors would buzz on and off in the rain and show I was close to something even when on the road.

Is there a fix to stop this happing like Vaseline or a water proof sealant that could be used? Once it was dry they were fine.

It may be possible to seal the exterior of the parking sensors with a waterproof sealant but it may just be the case the the seals around them have failed. A quick look online suggests that replacement seals are easy to get hold of, so this would be a better option than using a sealant.
