I suspect that it the outside air temperature sensor that reports the air temperature to your dash. The owners manual says it is located in the front bumper. It looks a lot like the temp sensor for my swimming pool equipment. Just an educated guess though.
It's near the fog lamps correct? What side was it on? My car is at the dealers so I can't go look for it. Maybe someone else can see where theirs is mounted. I would think that it would have a hole or spot to clip into since if it is touching the plastic it would not really give you an accurate air temp.
Would you mind to illustrate with some pic where it is this part since I didn't understand where is this 1mt wide plastic?
If you need some pic to show me where is it just let me know I'll post the pic you need in case you do not have anymore the SLK
There should be a clip with a semi-circular hole in it ...
to the left side on the lower grill. the probe fits into that clip, it just snaps in place. You should be able to see the clip if you get on the ground in front of the car. If the clip is not there, maybe it was broken off. If that's the case, you'll need a new clip.
One time I use to wash my car every day!
But now... I can't! My girlfriend say that I care more for my car than to her.
So now I don't wash it anymore.. till she will start asking me to whash it! Hehehehe![8D]
