January 2023 - New Fuel Sender Assembly

Fuel gauge was showing weird readings for some time and then suddenly stopped, culprit being the fuel float aka the fuel sender assembly. Got one immediately.

Sender Assembly - 21C-H5701-03 - ₹ 680.00

Found the issue. Some moron screwed up the connector and twisted the wire on the terminal, which was loose and eventually got off, breaking the circuit.
