Oil level sensor


Technical Specialist 1.2 TDI
Yes it looks like the 3l is common with the 1.2L petrol polo and a few others
No, the 1.2 9N Polo petrol engines have the same oil sensor as the AMF, BHC & ATL diesels (045907660D). Compared with the latter, the ANY sensor is in a different position.



Yes, ANY engines (1.2 TDI 3L) has a totally unique sensor, with a 90 degrees elbow. Most of the shops and catalogs would give the same sensor like in the 1.4 tdi, but it doesn't fit. If anyone has an idea where to get one in a reasonable price, i would really appreciate that, i've been hunting for one for years... :D There was also a thread somewhere regarding fixing one of these sensors, with pictures as well. Anyone seen that? Can't find either.. :(


I also have this error code:
00562 - Sensor for Oil Level/Temperature (G266)
29-10 - Short to Ground - Intermittent

I found this link on a german forum which is pretty clear on how to fix the sensor:

I'm planning on trying the operation with my next oil change. After fixing the hydraulic of the auto trans and successfully repacing the driver side door latch micro switch, I feel confident enough to try this one. After 3 years of level sensor warning beeping, that would be an amazing improvement ;)

I'll keep you updated
