    Smile found loose cable at front of radiator? what is it?

    Hi all!

    Was looking under the bonnet yesterday and noticed a cable infront of the radiator. It is attached to another like plastic tubing, just dangling about! Any ideas what it is? I will try and get pics up later on.

    Cheers

    Pics would help, but it may be the temperature sensor. That plugs into a hole on the bumper.

    Yeah thats the temperature sensor (for the MFD). Should be a hole in the back of the bumper that it clicks into. But you may struggle to get to it with the bumper fitted, due to crashbar.

    If not just secure it to something with a cable tie, and make sure the sensor can't fall off the cable
