You'll have to have a look and see if you find the beep lying around some where :lol: but seriously it's more than likely a bad wire or connector at the back of the unit for the sensors or the connector at the back of the radio .

Im going to have a look at the parking module if the diagram is correct should be somewhere in the boot on the left hand side.

An update on doing some research the audible beeping sound on a mk3 is played through the rear speakers ive fitted an amp recently and set the rear door speakers on low pass so higher frequencies get filtered out. As no one sits in the back or very rare didnt see any reason for the higher frequencies so hopefully it should be a case of switch it back to normal. You learn something new everyday lol especially with cars ĺol

Interesting to know. At least hopefully you have found the issue, and more importantly it is an easy fix, lol.

I second what Mike Say's and I hadn't realised you had altered the audio set up .

Yeah i had put an amp in before but that one didnt have any frequency filtering so didnt come accross the issue last time.

The same could happen if you moved the balance to front speakers only i guess.

So it has to be the frequency filtering then and not sure if altering the balance to front only will affect it tbh unless you had the frequency filtering on their too but seen as I have never fitted amp's before I wouldn't actually have any idea .
