New Zealand Windscreen Washer Indicator always on

My next problem on my 2010 R57 is the fluid level indicator for the windscreen washer is always on, I thought the reservoir was empty but when I went to top it up it was already full!

Any ideas on how to resolve this, is it just a matter of pulling the sensor from the reservoir and cleaning it? or is the sensor inside the pump somewhere?

The sensor is in the bottom on the washer bottle, accessed behind the left front wheel arch liner.
You just pull the sensor straight out of the container, after disconnecting the wiring plug, obviously catch all the water in a container, and theres a sealing grommet which should be undamaged and coated with an anti seize compound before replacing and then the unit pushed back into place.
Looks like some sort of reed/float valve, could well be stuck and need a clean.

Pulled out the float this afternoon and it looks like the floating part of the float is missing, pulled the reservoir out thinking it's in the bottom of the bottle but no sign of it.

Called BMW spares and one is on order for a mere $70

What it looks like


What it should look like

About replacing the sensor

Replacing the sensor for the new one worked for your warning issue?
