One would assume so wouldnt they. The plug is the same and the wires are its just a matter of running it to the sensor.

Speaking of which does the GLi have the compatability to run a low coolant sensor?

Power: 262 rwkw

NSW, Australia

The low Coolant sensor was fitted to all models , except the GLis (EF and EL Models)

The GLis dont have the wiring plug in the engine bay for em, unless you have the ABS option....

But having said that, its pretty piss easy to fit....

In terms of wiring, ground one wire of the sensor, and run the other wire to the instrument cluster.....

Then to physically fir the sensor

1) Remove the inner screw thingy on your water bottle where the sensor goes.
2) Remove the water bottle, and the water inside
3) Drill a hole in the middle of the area where the sensor goes...
4) Replace the screw thingy over the sensor, to get the thing water tight...

I think from memory its cheaper to buy the water bottle, and sensor seperately, than to get the thing as one unit from Ford Parts.....
