On this vehicle, the coolant level sensor is built into the bottom of the coolant reservoir. The coolant reservoir will need to be removed from the vehicle in order to access the level sensor.

We have already looked at the coolant tank and it looks as though the sensor is molded into the bottom of the tank. The sensor we bought has a nut on the end and should screw into the bottom of the tank. How do we remove the old sensor from the tank without replacing the coolant tank itself?

On this vehicle, the coolant level sensor is built into the bottom of the coolant reservoir. You will need to replace the reservoir as a unit to replace the coolant level sensor. It sells for around $66. If you have one that screws into the bottom of the tank, you have the wrong sensor.
