Unhappy Temperature sensor removal (for Gauge)

Hi guys,
MGF 1998 is it easy to remove the temperature gauge sensor????


or must other things be removed to allow access.


I have no indication on the temperature gauge.


Many thanks in advance

Reasonably easy (in MGF terms).

As usual prepare for dislocation of the fingers, wrists, elbows etc, but it just unscrews.

ps from memory (5-6 years ago), its the brown one for the gauge - but please double check that, and you need either a 17 or 19 mm spanner (with no space to turn it...).

For .org forum only search results in Google, add "site:mg-rover.org" after your search criteria

Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself.

Thanks Ian
According to the photo from cjj of the engine sensors it would appear to be the other one that is under the pipe and somebody said that the gearbox would need to be removed which I find strange????

Blue is for the temperature gauge.

Brown or black are for the ECU.

Do not interchange the three, they are incompatible with each other.

Before changing the sender make sure it is faulty by
a) earth the lead and the gauge so go to the red
and
b) check the OBD reading for coolant, after five minutes of running this should show above 88', if it doesn't suspect a thermostat fault.
