Angry New engine, now saying a sensor is not covered under new engine warranty!

Last year I had to replace the engine on my MCS due to the death rattle. Very expensive excercise (even though BMW did cover 4000 of the cost). Now I need a new sensor due to an occasional hesitation when the engine is under load.

They ordered the sensor, saying it would be covered under the 2 year warranty that came with the new engine.

Just had a call saying the sensor was actually taken from the old engine, so is not covered.

I've called and "explained" how I think this is ridiculous, surely a 6,500 new engine would include new sensors! Not happy.

The part will cost 120 plus a diagnostic charge. Not a huge ammount, just the principle really.
