Hi.
Whilst looking at my driveshaft. I noticed a connector wire hanging down.
Looks like a sensor above the nearside driveshaft is cracked.
What is it and how can it be replaced?
Thanks in advance.

Does no-one know what this is?
Reverse lights still work.

Yeah picture would be good!

Could be brake pad wear sensor or connector or the associated earth for it.

Reverse light switch is on the gearbox casing and mostly hidden from underneath.

Sorry didn't make it clear.
Connector/sensor in on gearbox above nearside driveshaft.
It's not connected. Reverse lights still work.

Not sure how to post photos on forums. Sorry.

not sure what could be up there, there are two gearbox Ident plungers, and the gearshift, not much room for anything else, unless its an auto
