    Bugs, faults and irritations (8G)
    So, this is apparently an Intake-air temperature sensor defect. I'm entirely unmechanically minded, however I like lego (!) so assume that a replacement sensor is easy to fit. How can I find out the part number for this, and where would you go to buy one? CES want £150+ VAT. Thanks all.
