First post.

Just picked up a '95 325ic - several issues that I need to deal with and I'm not afraid of the work - but more often than not its better to know WHAT is supposed to be done.

I looked under the front end and noticed this dangling down.


What is it and where is it supposed to be connected?

Thanks

It's your outside air temperature sensor. It mounts somewhere in the plastic ductwork (which may be broken and/or missing).

Great - I'll find something under there to attach it to - dangling like that is just going to get it wacked off at some point.

Oh, and since the display on the OBC is dead, I never would have known if it stopped working (another project, already researched through this forum).

^This^

You can see from the photo that the brake cooling duct is missing. Must be thousands of them laying in the ditches along side roads E36s have driven......
