Help... How to install a temperature sensor in a brava 1.2sx y

Anyone know how to install a temperature sensor in a fiat brava 1.2sx Y reg? My temperature guage keeps jumping to the red and then dropping to the correct temperature (Mostly it stays in the red). I have just had a new thermostat installed but it keeps happening, the guy in the garage pulled out the temperture sensor and the gauage dropped (this was located behind the engine on the right hand side). Can anyone help?

I have heard that a common fault is a loose connection in the dash. Do a search and it should tell you.

yeah its definately not the sensor, just a bad connection in the instrument panel. you need to bend 3 pins to fix it, or bang your fist on the dash for a quick fix.


here's the repair guide: http://www.fiatboo.co.uk/photogal/gu...tempdial_2.pdf
