RE: Multi Temp Sensor ('88 5ktq)

I have just encountered the lazy temp gauge on my '91 200Q.  I looked in
the Bentley and just found how to check the gauge not the multifunction
sensor.  Where is it located specifically on the 3B engine.  Does anyone
know what the approximate cost for one is?  I don't have a spare to
perform surgery on so I'm reluctant to start cutting.
