    Hi,
    The sensor is screwed into the exhaust housing of the turbo ( righthand side of the turbo )
    The pipe you mention is actualy a wire that goes around the engine block to the control box which sits under the plastic cover that sits around the dipstick tube.
    Hope this helps.

    I dont think anywhere does new ones cheaper to be honest.
    Check on ebay for people breaking cars.

    Sadly this is the price of them... I tried to get one myself and no one can discount them as they are making very little if anything at that price....

    I managed to find one on ebay.de but still cost me £50....

    What was the code exactly?
