    Identifying Sensor Help Please

    Right,

    During my con rod fire a couple of electrical sensors were melted and are non reusable.

    One of them sits on the back of the gearbox, anyone know a part no or have a link to the item? The engine code is AMK.

    I will upload some pictures asap when I'm next at the garage tomorrow evening.

    Thanks in advance.

    Tuffty's number looks better, I think the one you linked to on ebay is maybe for an auto box but I could be wrong. if you pm me you reg I'll try and match the sensor to your vin, doesn't always work but can try for you
