Re: temperature gauge sensor is located?

Easy to see from the driver's side.
The wire to it runs over the front of the rocker cover for the passy side.
Hope that helps.

Re: Lucky Coin

Yep, they are usually under the front edge of the rear carpets, behind the front seats.
Most will be removed by converters, which may explain why they are rich. 🤫.

On the inside of the panel quite near to the damaged area are some strips of stuck on tar /foam based stuff, it's to stop the panel sounding very tinny and vibrating. watch it it burns well with acrid smoke.

Re: Rattling noise

Maybe the rubber bonding is splitt apart, rattles when cool, the as it spins the 2 rubber coated surfaces get hot and tacky and improve the drive.
