    This should help you. It's on a TT, but the sensor is in the same place enginewise.

    Re: Coolant senser.

    It's just about here:



    you need to remove the cover to get to it.

    then look for this:



    remove the top clip and it's all self explanitory:



    Make sure the coolant is cool. If you slacken the coolant bottle top, make sure you tighten it back to normal before you replace the sensor, or water will wee everywhere.

    It's very easy to fit, and takes no time at all really - well worthwhile, sorted my cars idling problem out instantly! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    Re: Coolant senser.

    there are two different sensors, when i called vagparts they helped me out with the correct one. maybe this is why your's is a bit different. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/noidea.gif[/img]

    so has it cured your car back to normal?
