Abstract: A housing or housing part for a distance sensor, e.g., for motor vehicles, having at least one first housing part into which at least one member transparent to the sensor radiation for focusing the sensor radiation and/or at least one radome without intended focusing is/are integrated in the main radiation direction of the distance sensor. The housing or housing part has at least one second housing part into which at least one base plate having antenna elements is installed orthogonally to the main radiation direction of the distance sensor. A connecting line between the first housing part and the second housing part extends in a region between the base plate and the member transparent to the sensor radiation, and/or the radome. At least one plug connector is provided for electrical connection of the distance sensor to the motor vehicle. The connecting line is located in the region of the plug connector of the distance sensor, and is aligned co-axially to the main radiation direction of the distance sensor.
