Smile New motor

Hi guys. Been a while since I posted last and have been lurking and picking up info for on my previous Punto.
Have just picked up my latest Evo after"she who must be obeyed" decided to have it out with a Tyne Tunnel pay booth and wrote off our 05 Punto.
We got a 10 plate Dynamic, Dualogic, red with 13500 on the clock in nearly mint condition.
It only came with the remote key but I found a place in Newcastle that cut and programmed a new key for 90.
does anyone know what the sensor, just inside the windshield and halfway across, is for. It's about the size of a large marble.
Will no doubt be posting in future as I learn more about the latest toy.

Re: New motor

So i've been told, it's for the climate control, but only if you've got it.

If not (like me ) then it's just an empty cap!

apparently it a "sunshine sensor" so the climate can adjust the cabin temps a bit more controllably,

congrats on new Punto..!!
