After changing my antifreeze I was reinstalling the temp sensor and it twisted in two pieces, bummer.
The shop manual calls for a torque setting of 9 nm which is what I had set in my torque wrench. As I was tighting it down I heard a click before the torque wrench clicked, bad news, the temp sensor has gone from one piece to two pieces.
Naturally the dealer doesn't stock this item $16.00 so they have to order one. I am now waiting.
Just wanted to share this.
