    MFD Temp Display gone...

    Hi guys wonder if some one can help me,

    The temperature reading has gone from my mfd, the bulbs are all ok so im guessing the recent arctic climate was too much for the sensor to take.

    Has anyone changed one before, knows how to or generally know anything about getting it working again?

    Any help much appreciated

    Thanks Rob

    Your outdoor temperature is a "plug and play" device fitted on your front bumper at the bottom. Should be able to see if with bonnet open looking down the front bumber, see wire going to front bumper.
    Replacing is easy and very cheap, only couple of £ from vaux or ebay

    If the outdoor temp sensors gone the temp will still show but i will either be very high or just show --

    On a MK3 this is fitted in the bottom of the bumper on the passenger side.........

    this could be the reason why mine is reading 70'c tonight when it minus 2 out side and decidedly frosty will investigate further and change it the MFD is working correctly and shows all digits after i replaced the lamps in it so i think it will be the sensor then
