Anybody Know where the sensor is located?

Yeah it is normally under the wing mirrors. It looks like a little black rain drop.

Hi there, my 04 meg has just started UNDEREADING outside temp by 10 degrees, how do you get the drivers wing mirror cover off without damage so that I can clean or replace the thermister ? :roll:

Outside air temp sensor-cover off

Postby spungal69 » Thu Oct 04, 2007 9:33 pm

In order to get the cover off you need to prise the coloured part off the right handside mirror. I used a steel ruler starting at the outside edge working it along about halfway, the fold the mirror inwards to finally remove the cover.

If you use a screwdriver you may damage the cover unless you cover the edges with masking tape this may help.

The temp probe is a sealed unit with two grey wires leading out of it, you cannot clean it with anything I think the method replacement would be buy cutting the wires and re-joining them with the new probe or a used one from a scrapyard far, far cheaper.

Hope this helps

Thanks for your guidance, I didnt need to change the sensor but found that the connector pins between the door and the car body needed a clean. Job sorted. :cool:

My display (the one with the clock) stopped showing outside temp.
I Know Renault service mess this up, either when they cleaned my A/C or when they replaced right front door electric window mechanism.
Is there a way to fix this problem? Probably some wires are disconnected.
