    External Temp Sensor Location

    Anybody know where the external temperature gauge is on an 07 S3?

    I recently had my headlight washer jet replaced and now it seems the outside temperature varies wildly when the car is parked. This morning it started of at 10c when the temperature was 1c, it eventually dropped down to the correct reading.

    I'm guessing it might have been dislodged and is sitting in the sun when the car is parked, or something.

    The reading always used to be accurate when compared to my outside temperature gauge at home and only over-read by a small amount if the car was left sitting in the sun.

    I guess I could take it back to the dealer, what a pain.

    Thanks.

    It used to sit in the front bumper but I'm fairly sure is sits behind it now. Its not impossible it got knocked when they removed the bumper.
