Ambient Air Temp sensor

I have 2014 CLA 250, do I need to take the bumper off to get to the outside air temp sensor? I appreciate the help and as soon as I can figure out this website I will post this in the proper channel.

Why are you posting this question in the W211 E55/E63 section? When there is a section for the CLA!

M3>RS6 and now E63
The E63 w211 sensor is located behind the driverside wheel well and front bumper. No, you dont have to remove the bumper on the w211....but I have no idea where yours is and how to access it.

That is incorrect. The W211 E63 the air temperature probe/sensor is located in the driver side plastic fog light cover. I know this for a fact, because mine became dislodged and was resting near the engine given false temp readings. I had to install some adhesive to keep it in place.

Guys, the question is if the bumper needs to be remove to get to the temp sensor on a CLA, 2014 no less. Not where it is or how to get to temp meter on a E63! Letís stay on subject fellas

So just out of interest, do the other forum sub-sections get incorrectly selected on a regular basis?

It seems like there is at least a couple per week. The w211 AMG forum is in the middle of the AMG section; can you really find yourself here by accident?

Re

being new at this, I tried to post a thread and was prompted to create an account. Once the account was created the thread was posted. It wasnít until after that that I realised it was in the wrong place. But Iím not sure how I could have handled it differently. I gues I could have hung around the site learning how it is all setup in the event that one day I would have a question to post. apologetically I didnít.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like something a site admin should look into. It would be a shame if new members were driven away after a crappy reception from the wrong sub-forum. Welcome anyway. This is the correct forum, took me a while to find it too

He was in the wrong section when he tried to make the thread most likely. Why he was looking for info on his car in this section is a mystery.

The forum software doesn't just post things in random places. It is 100% user error when something is posted in the wrong place.

Haha well I do agree with everything you had said. It just seemed a bit too common to be 100% entirely due to those things. It's been a while since either of us signed up. Oh well internet brands can choose whether to care.
