Broken sensor

Since this sensor looks broken, I'd like to replace it. However I'm not sure what it is or where it goes.

Is that in the trunk? What does the harness it's plugged into go to?

It's in the engine bay and it's off of the harness that goes to the brake reservoir

Is this on the Teves II system? A year/engine would help, as would a photo showing the master cylinder.

You can see that the sensor in question is in the same harness as the brake fluid level sensor and the master cylinder ground.

I'm surprised your Brake Fluid Reservoir isn't empty right now, or is it??

Anyways, that piece hanging off of that connector is part of your Brake Fluid Reservoir..

I have it circled in this pic:

Um...well that explains where it goes! And surprisingly enough it is still full of fluid. Thank you for the help

I broke that piece off Platoribs' black SC when I was doing the manual pedal conversion, just getting the wiring out of the way for the hole saw, it's very brittle. Luckily that car is getting converted to conventional, I recommend the same.
