by sender do you mean the pickup inside your tank? and its just leaking outta the o-ring that seals the top of your pickup to the tank? o rings are real cheap, even fuel pickup units themself are.

u gotta measure the output wires, empty will be in free air, measure, note resistance, then full, measure (submerged in liquid) note resistance, alternativly if you can still read the code on your sender you can call vdo up and quote the code, but the resistances is the easiest way to do it
