    That small fuel pipe at the end of the rail goes to a switch, but I think you mean the rad thermoswitch which is a 2 in one unit - ie it has 2 stages.


    1.8 G60 & 1.9 TDI

    Ambient air temp sensor - causes the rad cooling fan to overrun, after the engine has been switched off (for upto 20 mins).
