That really is strange !
If i were doing what you plan to do then i would look through youtube, there must be an instructional video on there.
Some manufacturers of aftermarket gauges even make their own video and post it.


Maybe something in here that could help --

Thanks again for that Wiggy,

Yes I have looked on Youtube, and advise on there does help. I was hoping for information specific to fitting on a Ford B-Max.

To be honest i would say that all cooling systems are basically the same so any instructions would suffice.
The "easiest" to fit would be the one that uses a new top hose with the sensor fitted into it rather than searching the engine block for a suitable threaded hole to screw a sensor into, as in the 4th video down in the list on youtube.

Thanks Wiggy,

Yes that is the kind I was thinking of fitting into the Top hose.

I have decided to shelve my plan until maybe the spring time. I have found that none of the round temperature gauges (which nearly all of them are) available in the UK will fit into the space on the centre console where I was intending to install it. There is an oblong one available that will fit into that space, it used to be available on Amazon UK but now is only available from Amazon USA from the Chinese seller, with an expected delivery of maybe next March.

So thanks again for your help.

the 1l ecoboost engine has two thermostats, so wherever you put a sensor will only indicate that part of the cooling circuit at that time. radiator entry (top hose) is a good place

do any of these suit?
