    Default Outside temperature reading high?

    Hi, My outside temperature reading is all of a sudden reading approx 7 degrees too high? I did have a collision with a fox on the front offside at the weekend at high speed, would this have affected it?

    thanks

    It may have as on the front bumper there is a thermostat device/heat sensor, which reads outside temps, what ull prob find is that the sensor for it is touching the rad or a water hose causing to read high temps

    Is it easy to replace, and will that prob be the fault?
    I thought summer was on its way this morning when it read 16.

    It could be. I got mine replaced on my old petrol 2.0T as it was showing 30 degrees in winter.

    Easy to replace, just unclip the old one and replace with the new one. Difficult part is having to remove bumper to get behind the lower grille, if you have to.

    On my old 2.0T there was a gap between the rads and the bumper large enough to just reach down into to get to the sensor, but on my current facelift diesel, there is no gap.

    Just check before you remove the bumper. I did mine by lying on my back with the front hanging over a kerb..... But as said they do vary!!
