    Hi Folks, new to the forum although have had the C diesel for 6 years now. Planning to hold on to it despite being on the 3rd turbo!! and as such doing my own maint now. Outside temp gauge looks faulty but can't find it in the haynes manual. Any advice greatly accepted in respect of it's location.

    Its down on the crossmember behind the bottom grill on my car (1.9cdti). Just open the bonnet and look down in front of the aircon radiator.

    well it all depends.....was it ever working ?? has it recently stopped....
    has it never worked - has the car been into a bodyshop for repairs and these have been completed substandard....

    is it a basic model where its not been fitted as standard as a cost cutting excercise??

    if its not there now and it WAS ...its been removed by someone
