Location of Outside Air Temperature Sensor

My '03 SL55 is showing 185F on console as ambient temperature. Where is the sensor located? I seen a picture of the sensor (little cone shaped sensor with plug in). Other models say it is in the driver's side front bumper. I looked and can not find in the bumper behind grill. Picture would be great.

Thanks for the help.

Thank you

I found it. I was originally looking next to the fog light like in the picture but, I found it in the center lower grille/driver's side (6 inches over). I will take picture and post.

Looks like the tip of the sensor is sheared off. Is it normal for the sensor to fail high (185F)?

Thanks again.

Yes high is the normal on failure,, works the same way as the sensors on the car

Must be different location on SL550 with AMG Trim package

I have a 2007 SL550 with the AMG trim package (which includes the AMG from bumper and side skirts).

I have searched and searched but can't find the outside temp sensor. In the WIS worksheet for removing the front bumper, it shows it is in the foglight grill on the driver's side. Mine is not. In the pics posted here, it shows it attached to the metal mesh grill in the bottom center. Mine is not.

I have a new one to put on but just can't find it on my car. Any advice on where else it might be? I am sure it must be because of the trim package.

Thanks guys.
