Reverse sensors are too quite - how can I make them louder?

The reverse sensors on my Kia Venga are very difficult to hear as my hearing is not good. Kia say that the bleeper is part of a circuit board and cannot be moved, while fitting additional sensors will invalidate the warranty. Is there any way to amplify the sound?

Not without invalidating the warranty. It is a problem of can bus wiring systems. Maplins will offer an amplifier, but it would probably also invalidate the warranty.

I bought a brand new Ford Fiesta in 2014 - Titanium five-door, with metallic paint and front and rear parking sensors. From day one, the parking sensors drive me nuts - they go off at random when I'm driving...
