Temp Sensor Replacement

A rodent ate the wires off my 2008 Mustang GT temp sensor under the intake manifold. Can the sensor be replaced without removal of the intake manifold?
The wires lead to a plastic cap that appears to fit over a metal sensor that actually goes into engine. If the cap is a snap on type, maybe it could be replaced without breaking into the engine.

Re: Temp Sensor Replacement

It looks like it can be replaced without pulling the manifold based on the information in Alldata. Ford has three types of temperature sensors - screw in ones have a hex fitting on them, while the ones without a hex fitting either snap in place or come out with a half twist.

Re: Temp Sensor Replacement

Matt, any idea how I can tell which one I have. Are there pictures somewhere I can look at? You mention Alldata., but I have never heard of it. Is it public or private area.
