    There is a sensor on a coupler which joins a pipe onto the bottom right hand side of the radiator. Anyone know what this sensor is? It's just I need to replace the coupler and am unable to get one with a sensor/electrical connector so could put an ordinary one in as a temporary measure 2 stop leak if I new what the sensor was for. All help appreciated.
    !!IF IN DOUBT DIFF HER OUT!!

    Mayb I've described the location wrong, it's the bottom left when looking at your BMW. But if you were the engine looking at your radiator it would be the bottom right, it's on the opposite side from where you fill coolant up on the bottom. Don't think it could be coolant level I'll get a pic up wen I can.
