Parking sensor issue

Hello everybody, there may or may not be similar threads out there, i simply couldn't find anything that fits my issue, so i decided to open a new one.

Anyway, I have this little issue with my CLK w208 (2000), it came with the original MB parking sensors from the factory, i'm saying this because the system wasn't installed by some guy in his garage, so everything is done by the textbook ( should be at least )
Now, the system itself worked fine, no issues at all with D or reverse, until someone actually stole 3 of total 6 of the actual sensors from the front bumper, so i ended up with 3 sensors on one side of the front bumper and 4 ones to the back.
It's pain in the butt to reinstall the missing sensors, because first of all i have to buy them and then wires are also f**d up, the guy didn't just clip the sensors off and left, he cut them off with some wiring, so i deicided to completely get rid of front ones ( not needed anyway ) and just use the rear ones and that's what i need the help with.
As you know if any of the sensors go bad, entire system stops working so i guess somehow i have to convince the system to ignore to front ones.. I'm not exactly sure how to do that, but I think if i find the main parking module and unplug the front ones ( hopefully it's just like the router ) that's gonna fix the problem.
So first of all i'm not sure where that module is, i'm guessing somewhere in the trunk, behind the interior ( not sure how to remove that interior aswell )
Any ideas? thanks in advance!

Little update, couldn't find anything interesting in the trunk other than cd changer and telephone module, does anybody know where the parking sensor module might be? Maybe someone has w208 wiring harness scheme or something

Sorry, I was searching a scrap clk for bits that could be useful in the future and the carpet had already been removed. Haven't tried this with my car. Good luck.

You may need to remove trim pieces before removing the carpet: https://mbworld.org/forums/c-class-w...er-s-side.html

Alright so, removing the footwell cover is pretty straight forward, nothing is actually holding that thing in, no screws or anything, It's just tucked in real well, the only thing you need to remove in order to set the footwell cover free is the plastic panel on the right side, basically you remove the door sill by pulling it straight UP and then you'll see one clip, unfrotunately i forgot to take pictures, you can't really damage the footwell cover, it's really flexible.
Anyway, i found these two modules, numbers on one module 0215459032 and 0263004008 ( two numbers on the same module ) and the number on second module 027 545 03 32 aaand... i'm kind of confused right now, I did some googling but still couldn't figure out which one is the parking module, got different search results which kinda conradicted each other, any ideas?

Edit: module that has one number on it is a transmission control unit, however the second module that has two numbers on it is... yea it's the parking module but there is something else in that thing aswell, because when you search for the second number on that module you get answers that are correlated to transmission, i just don't wanna f**k something up, hopefully it's just a little control module that activates either front parking screen or back one, based on which gear you're in
