So I’ve replaced the ambient temperature sensor on my lci f30 as it was reading 44C when it’s 10C here. However the new BMW sensor no longer fits tightly inside the rubber grommet like the old sensor did. There is a notch in the old sensor and not the new. My local BMW dealership who are very good have told me they are the same part numbers and that’s what they stock. So, would a drop of silicone be the best way of securing it or has anyone else experienced this.
