Ambient Temp Sensor location???
Hey all, I have a 1999 SLK230. My digital readout has been showing the external temperature as -36 deg F. While getting some work done at the dealer, they mentioned that the external sensor was missing and that I needed a new one to correct the problem. The part was only $20, but they wanted $100 to "install" it. The price seemed fair so I ordered a new one, however, I know that that is a rip-off for labor. I'm fairly mechanical (changed my own brake pads and rotors, change my oil, wired my own car stereo stuff, etc), however I cannot, for the life of me, locate where the heck this little sensor is suppose to go. I have found similar postings pertaining to other Mercedes models, which list the location as in the front fender near the fog lamp on the passenger side. I have look pretty extensively in this area of the car (inside the fender and underneath it outside) and I still cannot locate it....
The real question, does anyone else have any ideas where this sensor is located??
Any help would be seriously appreciated!
