Ebay. Are you sure you need it. The latest flash ignores the data from this sensor. Anyway, figure out the proper part numbers and get them off ebay. This is how i do it and do save a descent amount of money. Just be careful with the part numbers. They have to be absolute perfect matches.

I would go through Auto Nation. Dealer cost plus 10% on all Ford parts. eBay can be sketchy. There's a lot of Chinese stuff on there. Often its packaged in a "Ford" box. They'll print up the packaging and make everything look legit, but its fake. No real recourse to catch the people doing this stuff.

I worked in Asia and its amazing the knock-offs they have now and its almost impossible to tell the difference. Ebay has an entire community of vendors that deal in this stuff, from running shoes to car parts.

I agree with you that the safe bet is to get it from Auto Nation-White Bear Lake.

The other advantage to buying from them is that you get the Ford 2-year Warranty which you typically will not get from the Ebay crowd.

Ok, but i would still check ebay. Just stick to the sellers that are ford dealers then. I just got the metal pipe to replace the plastic cac tube for $114 from Sunrise Ford in California.

Saved $20 over Auto Nation, not bad. All I'm saying is that with eBay, caveat emptor (buyer beware). If its a Ford dealer, and I would verify that by Googling them, then I'd feel safe. Otherwise I'd probably steer clear, or you risk it being Huang Jin Ford Forgeries.

Sunrise looks legit.

One thing to consider with Ebay is usually the buyer is responsible for shipping charges if the part is wrong or not described correctly.
