    my 2015 Ducato based A class Rapido is showing an external temperature between 30 and 40 deg C. Unfortunately I am driving through the midlands so it is probably about half of that. Does anyone have any experience of fixing that? I assume that the sensor is in the external mirror so advice on how to get at it would be helpful

    Thanks, I read elsewhere on this forum about the mirror, not sure what I’m looking for! One thing I have noticed is that it goes down a bit when I’m stopped in traffic or traffic lights. Also I don’t really have a front bumper! ( but I know what you mean)

    If you do have the wing mirror type. It looks like this on the underside of the drivers / RHS mirror
