I noticed today that the outside air temperature display on the dashboard just shows "a dash" instead of a number, I'm guessing the sensor could be faulty or a loose wire, does anyone know where this sensor is located plz?

Same problem here - I can get the part but how on earth you get into the wing mirror assembly is a mystery....

The glass pops off, if you motor the glass fully towards the car window (not the body of the mirror just the glass) you should,see looking behind it from the outer edge a clip. They used to be like two metal loops. Release glass and take it out. The front cover clips can then be seen, depress the tongues to remove the cover. You will see the sensor. You may have to remove the mirror to feed the wires to the plug/socket. The screws are behind the trim inside the car where the mirror is. The trim pops off.
