E46 Fuel Level Sensor repair without Parts

This is my first post here, so I'd like to thank everybody for their help.

This is a long explanation of the Why and the How to fix your Fuel Level Sensor. Hopefully it will help you SAVE ABOUT $450 OR MORE with $0 cost, just labor of about 2-3 hours. But, if you are CEO of a big Fortune 500 go ahead and buy the replacement parts, otherwise read on.

Good luck.

That is an excellent idea / DIY should be sticky for sure!

When I took my old fuel pump out I noticed the arc over the segmented lines and I was wondering how much would last. Already saved the file, many thanks! Will definitely come handy

Great idea, however i did it better

Instead of cuting gluing and any of that mess, you can just bend contact heads. Just did it on my both sides and checked it with electric meter or tester i dont remember how you call them. Seems much better will update if something goes wrong, for now eerything looks good.
