Coolant temp sensor

Recently I bypassed my second leaky heater core. I have decided not to replave it again..its just too involved and the replacements dont seem to last. And anyway, I never drive the car when it is cold enough to need it.

In the process of bypassing I accidentally broke a sensor that is screwed in tight to a kind of T joint little pipe that connected to one of the lines coming from the core. I had assumed it was the coolant temp sensor, so I went to the parts store for one.. however what they gave me was similar but not same. Also, I have seen graphics and pics showing the coolant temp sensor in a totally different location. But since I broke the ine that is there, I have no temp reading..

Anyway.. wondering if I am correct about that being the temp sensor and if anyone has a part number (88 Turbocoupe) for replacement. Also wondering if its possible to get the little T pipe its in because it is stuck fast in it and the metal on the pipe I dont think will withstand the pressure required to free it.

It's a coolant temp switch for the climate control. Since you're not replacing the heater core it will serve no purpose anyways. Just take the whole thing out and jumper the plug contacts together.

The sensor just prevents the heat from coming on until the coolant reaches a certain temperature... if it was even working.
