So while I was working with the body shop to repair my from bumper and replace it with a bumper from EuroCreations (which doesn't fit) I found this part hanging down. None of us could figure out what it is or does. My guess is something to do with the airbag.
From the pics I've posted, does anyone know what this is and where it's supposed to go? It looks like it pops into something, but we can't find a place.
well, i'm sure they can help you, maybe they just didn't know you were talking about obdII, i don't know anything about these or i'd try to tell you what it is, but don't give up yet, they really do know alot. cheers, and good luck!
Actually I have never heard of a heated washer jet. And yes that goes in the driver side brake duct for the OBDII cars. There is also another sensor that I couldn't figure out what the hell it did in the passenger brake duct.

I couldnt load the pictures, but from the thumbnail pics I see, I dont think it looks like my outside temperature sensor at all. Mine (1989 5 series) is in th epassenger duct. Mine was hanging too but I jus zip tied it back up I cant afford the sensor needle anyways.
It's a "thermal switch" ... and has something to do with "heated washer jets" that swindon matt uk mentioned. I learn somethign new everyday. You can't really notice the warmer water with your bare hand, butwill notice that they work on icy days where they jets easily disperse ice.
