    having a slight prob with the temp guage, when the car is cold, as the guage rises it sticks at 50, then after around 10 mins it jumps up to 70, after the same amount of time it finally jumps up to the correct 90 degrees, and then promptly drops to 0.
    then on after it goes up to 90, then just drops to 0 over and over again.

    anyone else had this prob at all?
    also where can i find the temp sender under the bonnet on a 2001 1.9TDI so i can take it out and test it.

    many thanks.

    Outside air temp guage or Engine Coolant gauge?

    The outside air temp sensor is somewhere in front of the radiator or condensor, but I can't remember which side.

    I have replaced mine as I had the same problems. Trouble is it didn't really fix mine. It's still a bit odd at times, allbeit better.

    The temp sender is located behind the engine. There are 4 wires that come out of it and it's angled slightly downwards. Access from offside.I have a photo of it that I can email if you wish. Before I did mind PeteTDI pointed me in the right direction. I have the same year and engine so it should be spot on. It's an easy ish job, just a tight squeeze to get your hand to it. It's worth a go and is if it fixes the problem.
