Block heater plug bracket w/ ambient temp sensor

6 posts in this topic

Hi all. First post. Have a 2005 Passion CDI, purchased Feb 2017. I have been trying to find info about the piece of plastic that holds the block heater plug and exterior temperature sensor. By the look of things the corner got a bit of a smack and cracked that piece and broke the wires for the temp sensor. In short, wonder where I may be able to find one second hand, and maybe with the temp sensor pig tail (wires broke right at the plug).

 

Thanks, 

Dave

Outside temperature sensor and Defa Miniplug inlet is fixed to front spoiler.  Temperature sensor plug is same for all temperature sensors on a Smart 450, i.e. diesel temperature sensor, coolant temperature sensor, inlet air temperature sensor and outside temperature sensor.  Spare connector with short lead costs nearly £30 from Mercedes, part number is Q0004633V008000000.

A wee but important correction. Block heater plug and outside temperature gauge are attached to the plastic support cradle for radiator and condenser.

I am damned sure I wrote sensor.  Why does the bloody iPhone keep correcting things without letting me know?

Haha. I took auto correct off so I have to claim all my errors, keeps me honest.

 

I'm in need of the plastic piece those two items sit in. Tried to upload a pic but too large of a file. Its messed up. I haven't looked in depth at the extent of the damage, but the drivers corner of the lower air valence is gone.
