Sensor in wheel well, both sides, what for?

Post by Florian320 »

Good afternoon!

In my '99 4500 GRX in the wheel wells there is a sensor that is loose.
I can't find the pic anymore, but it is mounted on both sides, clipped from the outside in the aft upper body direction, about 10-11 'o clock on the driver's and 1-2 on the passenger's side.
With the sensor out there is an opening from the engine bay into wheel well and there is a line attached which I am not sure about if it is an electric or suction line.

The plastic nose holding it seems to be a bit weak. Can anyone tell me which kind of sensor this is?

Stay healthy!

Unfortunately did the photo I took not appear on my phone's picture library, I don't know why.
And right now I can't access the car as I am not near it and obviously can't travel there now.
I'll post a pic as soon as I get the chance to make one but don't know when this can happen.
