Question external temp sensor

Hello
It looks like there is something wrong with the external temp sensor on my Weekend 1.8 ELX from 99'. It shows temperatures that are unrealistic. Even though now the temp is under zero it shows at about 20C while during the summer it normaly shows about 5 degrees more than the actual temp.
Does anybody have any clue how to repair this problem?
What about the sensor, does anybody know where it is situated? Maybee it needs to be cleaned.

Drivers side mirror - little black thing sticking down under. Only options from Fiat are replace mirror (and sensor) £80ish or replace the full binacle £300ish. Trust me I've already asked.

£13.84 according to Eper. If fiat can order one is a different matter.

Re: external temp sensor

Have you tried clean up the sensor? Use some alcohol. Sometimes, just that solves the problem!
