Anyone got or had this problem on thier golf. The temperature gauge intermittently works. One minute its giving a good readout the next it dies and gives no readout. The car isnt over heating tho ? so dont think its the thermostat
gonna ring the stealer dealer on monday for a price on that part then as its really annoying that it doesnt work. Any one know if it will damage any thing if its not fixed ? I thinbk the fan still kicks in !
Make sure your engine is stone cold. Its best to do this early in the morning.
Take cap of engine collant resovoir.
of the engine cover and on the right of the engine block you will see a
chunky coolant hose that runs from the radiator towards the back end of
the engine bay.
Towards the back of this hose you will see a plug with a wire
running from it.Slip a small flat end screw driver into the top of the
plug then pull up to release it from the coolant sender.
the side of the sender where it plugs into the coolant hose is a
plastic U shaped clip.Remove this clip that retains the sender and slowly rock the sender back and forth to ease
it out. you should only lose a few drops of coolant.
Once the sender is removed check that the
rubber 'o' ring is attached to it, if not take it out from where the
sender came from..
Well, temp sensor cost ?28 from dealers and it took 5-mins to put in. I will need to top up the coolant now tho, so any one who reads this make sure you have some to hand. Just need to test it now , will report back
