i will buy this sensor for $100 if you have it. active steering angle sensor

mine is smashed and i need one asap!!! looked in junk yards all over but no luck.... its located on the bottom of the steering rack. check out the pictures....
if anyone finds this i will send you the money ASAP. went to a junk yard here in texas and they had a 335i but it didn't have active steering. they were only asking 10 bucks if they had it... you can make some good money if you find it. please help!!!
i'm tired of opening the garage doors and see my car on jacks.
by the way i have a 2007 bmw 335I. you can also find the sensor on E90 E91 and E92 2006-2007

From your exploded view, I am assuming BMW only sells the complete steering assembly?

I think he's asking because there doesn't seem to be a part listing for it or at least I can't find one.

See here:

yeah, there is a part number on the sensor but bmw does not sell it separately.... and there are no aftermarket ones out there. i also called the manufacturer bosch and they said that the can only sell it to bmw... way to monopolize ****!

You might try Sean at Veldmansauto in Indiana. 800-888-3821 x306. I saw an ebay ad selling parts for a wrecked xi (I need front end parts for my project). He has a power steering rack with active steering on it. I think he wanted either $300 or $400 for rack. You might get him to sell you the sensor off the rack. I don't know him at all, just talked to him on the phone about my parts needs but he didn't have anything for me. Maybe it's worth a try. One of their ebay ads: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/06-BM...item3cab3a0aff. This is the ad I responded to and he replied to me with his phone number.

The tend to carry more from older cars but were very nice when helping me find some parts for my E39. Worth calling or sending an e-mail.

thats a nasty looking undercarriage, lots of corrosion going on there, and it looks like you hit the sensor on something, Still sucks that you cannot purchase the sensor separately

you guys up north need to spray your undercarriages with oil prior to winter and after the salt deluge, I still think if the environmentalist really cared about the environment they would raise hell about all the salt spread on the roads, which tells you its all political
