Yep low coolant level.

If your's doesn't look low it means the sensor has started to fill with water. You can fix them for next to nothing or buy new for $50 odd from Fraud. Got flamed last time I advised how to fix so if you really want to know PM me. Or do a search.

cheers
Scott

If it is anything but a GLi it will have one.

If it's a GLi then you've most likely replaced the wrong bulb at one point in time.

Just pull the bulb out. You don't have the sensor or the wiring. You can install it but probably not worth the effort.

cheers

For this sort of thing, you need a owners manual not a workshop manual. The type that Ford provide with the car from new.
