I'm looking for a replacement TTS and I found this one on Ebay but not exactly sure if it will work. Part number TW190

Temperature Sender Alfa Bentley R BMW Ferrari Peugeot Porsche Rolls Saab Volvo | eBay

It says it will work in description along with many other vehicles. Has anyone used this one or know of compatible part numbers?



Its really hard finding any info on that sensor. The manufacturer's website is under construction and doesn't even list a phone number to call them.

Searching the Bosch part number, some sites come up with other manufacturers equivalents, but unfortunately searches of those part numbers mostly result in the part number not existing, not being available or for an outrageous price.

158-0036,BECK/ARNLEY 158-0036; Switch, EGR Time Delay

My understanding is the sensor operates relative to a temperature and for a duration. So in theory, as long as you find one that is close in parameter it should probably work. What I would be concerned with is making sure the connector, thread and the probe length match.

The Bosch sensor has the parameters engraved right into it (35 deg C and 8 seconds). Ask the seller is there is anything engraved on that sensor, and if he can confirm the sensors thread and probe length. If so, post that info and maybe somebody with a spare sensor or spare engine can pull it out and provide the dimensions for their sensor.

Good luck!

over here on the various VW forums the bosch 0280130214 (worth searching also 0 280 130 214, as that is how Bosch numbers things) corresponds to a VW part
043906163A
.......in case that helps your search?

a VDO alternative to the VW/bosch part seems to be this:

I have a used Temp switch out of my 86 (Lil Red). When replaced, it was done by a mechanic that liked changing parts. Send me a PM if you want it.

try eEUROPARTS.com Give them the bosch number on your current TTS and they will cross reference the new replacement. Prices have also been reasonable and the sales staff very helpful. They are also excellent at finding any bosch part....even the cold start valves.
