The design of the fuel level sensor has changed a few times. The ones I've seen are all black plastic. The bottom plug has a plastic rod coming out of the top. The rod has a circlip on the top and the float rides on the rod, kept on by the circlip. The float is a cylinder of rigid foam. I think there's a metal washer in it that trips the sensor when it goes to the bottom.When mine went bad it was the foam that stopped floating, it sank like a stone.I suspect the goo you saw was what was left of the float after our alcohol laden US fuel mostly dissolved it. Was there a metal washer or other metal bit near the bottom of the goo?Call your dealer, explain what's up. They should get you a new sensor under warranty and if they're cool they'll probably let you install it yourself.Scott
ehh..like always happens to me, the picture is rotated 90 degrees..so in your minds, rotate 90 clockwise.
Mine quit working awhile back, but I haven't figured out where the disconnect is. The float is still working right. I'm thinking about just running a hot wire to the float and let it work from. It doesn't need to turn on with the key AFAIC.Bare
