Unhappy

My car took a tire belt, whipping out the front foglight and removing the two underside foglight shields. At the same time, the outside temp sensor connecting to the trip computer came loose from the location into which it was plugged.

My question is...what is that location? I took a quick scan yesterday, but couldn't immediately see the right hole where the tip fits. Is it possible that it fits into one of the underside shields that was torn off? Thanks in advance...

I've been wondering that too. Mine was hanging down when I boaght my car. I have wire-tied to keep it secure, but it never reads correctly now. The heat from the engine always makes it read higher than it should be.

The outside temp sensor is supposed to be plugged into the disk brake cooling duct on the drivers side. there is only one hole for it. Just push it back in if the duct is still in place. Sounds like the blow out caused a lot$$$ of damage.
