The title says it all really. I know roughly where the sensor should be, (round the back of the engine block) but can't see it!

The car is a February 2001 turbo diesel Passat (100 BHP). The temperature guage on the dash works intermittandly, but instantly drops down to zero and satys there.

Can anyone give me more specific description, or even a picture?

Cheers

On the 1.8T it's mounted vertically just past the rear of the valve cover. I don't know if it's in the same place on the TDI.

You might want to check with your dealer and see if the TDI's temp sensor was part of the recent warranty extension program. So many temp sensors were failing that they extended the warranty on that part. You might be able to have it replaced under warranty.
